Trivia & History

Lew Parker, playing Senex, became ill at the end of the pre-Broadway run in Chicago. He had been playing the role since the production had started at the Ahmanson in Los Angeles, before it was decided that the production would move to Broadway. Although Parker was listed in the Broadway opening-night playbill and some sources therefore list him as having played Senex in this revival, he did not play the opening-night performance and he never returned to the show.
