Original Broadway Production (1928)

Trivia & History

The first day's sale in Boston, where the show played its pre-Broadway run, was an impressive $21,000.


Rehearsals began on November 8, 1927.


Originally Sidney Blackmer was to play Lt. Richard Fry. After rehearsing one day, Blackmer and producer Florenz Ziegfeld jointly decided that the role needed a musical comedy performer. Oliver McLennan, an Australian tenor, was hired.


There was a possible run in Philadelphia discussed but the show remained in Boston for its entire pre-Broadway tryout.
