Trivia & History

Some online sources list replacements in this production as original-cast members. In addition, these online sources incorrectly list the date of the first Broadway preview as having been Wednesday April 18, 1951. The first preview was the night before that, on April 17. The production opened on April 19, having played two previews: on Tuesday night and Wednesday night. The first preview was a benefit for the Children's Aid Society. The second preview was a benefit for the American National Theatre and Academy (ANTA).
