Trivia & History

The production was to have played the first engagment of what was expected to be a nine-month pre-Broadway tour at the Morris Mechanic Theatre in Baltimore. It was to have opened there on September 9, 1974, but the Baltimore run was canceled when star Bette Davis became ill with what was announced to the press as a back ailment.

The only pre-Broadway engagement ended up being at the Shubert in Philadelphia, where, after a postponement or two, it opened on October 7, after 1 preview. (Some sources incorrectly give the opening date as October 10.) The run there was to have been through October 26, but it closed on October 18, which was a Friday night, when Davis again became ill. (Some later sources give the closing date as October 17, but sources as the time said it closed on October 18.) The rest of the pre-Broadway tour was canceled, along with any hopes of opening on Broadway. The next pre-Broadway was to have been at the Shubert in Boston, where it was to have opened a three-week run on October 28.

Also canceled was the cast recording, which RCA had contracted to record.
