Trivia & History

Jack Carter took over as a summer replacement for Phil Silvers on July 21, 1952, with Silvers expected to return after Labor Day. Perhaps in part because New York was experiencing a particularly hot summer, the production closed down two weeks later, after the performance on August 2, and re-opened with Silvers on September 1.
