Trivia & History

Most unusually for the time period, the production played two public previews before the official opening-night of its tryout run at the Colonial in Boston. This was explained in the New York Times as having been deemed necessary because there was a shortage of stagehands "and on that account it was considered inadvisable to have the critics present." It wasn't until Friday of that week that the full quota of stagehands was available, and the Boston critics aw the show on that night.
