Trivia & History

The production was originally annouced to close on November 5, 1961, but the run was extended after Eleanor Roosevelt wrote favorably about the show in her New York Post column. A quotation from Mrs. Roosevelt — "I hope the public will patronize it" — was used in newspaper ads, but even with beloved former first lady's endorsement the public still didn't come in sufficient numbers for the show to last more than one more week.
