Trivia & History

During the tryout, co-producer John Fearnley replaced Michael Gordon as director, although Gordon retained sole directorial credit. In addition, Paul Godkin joined the production to provide musical staging and choreography for at least two numbers, but he was credited only in the list of musical number.

There was also a cast replacement during the tryout. Odette Myrtil replaced Irene Bordoni in the important supporting role of Madame Marstonne.
