Trivia & History

The opening date originally announced for the production was March 7, 1970, with previews starting January 29, but the opening was delayed till March 26.

Even had the production opened on its originally scheduled opening date, that would have been an exceptionally long preview period for 1970, but the show had chosen not to play an out-of-town tryout, which was still relatively rare for Broadway musicals at the time, especially ones 

On February 11, it was announced in the press that the original director, Lawrence Kornfeld, and the original choreographer, Patricia Birch, would be replaced by Stanley Prager and Marc Breaux, respectively.
