Trivia & History

The production, unusually for the time, did not play an out-of-town tryout. There were previews in New York, but we have not been able to determine how many previews were played.  Previews for Broadway shows were rarely advertised at this time. They usually were sold as theatre parties. Variety reported one preview was played, but other press reports suggested that a week of previews was played.
