Trivia & History

It was reported in the press that Orson Welles was approached to direct. The job went to Norman Lloyd, who had worked with Welles. Lloyd quit as director after either the first preview, according to some press reports, or after the dress rehearsal, according to other press reports. Lloyd was quoted in several newspapers saying that he left because ”of a great difference of opinion regarding the approach to the show” between him and producer Peter Lawrence and authors Mel Brooks and Joe Darion. Lawrence told the press that it would not be necessary to engage another director, and the show opened with no director credited. It is believed that Brooks took over after Lloyd left.
