Trivia & History

The production was originally scheduled to open on Broadway on May 30, 1956, but the need for revisions caused the opening to be delayed to June 13. During the out-of-town tryout, Albert Marre replaced Marshall Jamison as director, and both leads were replaced. Lew Ayres was replaced by Dennis King, and Susan Cabot was replaced by Shirley Yamaguchi. For a time during the tryout, Jack Cassidy, who was playing a supporting role and understudying Lew Ayres, played the leading male role.

Performances were canceled for the final week of the pre-Broadway run in Boston and the production went back into rehearsal, staying in Boston to rehearse.
