Trivia & History

Word Baker was the original director. The production, which started previews on March 31, 1961, was originally scheduled to open on April 11. In the New York Times on April 12, 1961, it was announced that Baker was being replaced by Gerald Freedman. The article also mentioned that the show had been scheduled to open the night before, but the opening was being delayed by a week.

Two days later the theatre column in the Times reported that Freedman would not be taking over as director. When the show opened, there was no credited director, but co-producer Theodore Man was listed as production supervisor.
