Trivia & History

The production toured for seven months to generally good business if somewhat mixed reviews before opening at City Center for what was announced as a 12-week run. No specific closing date seems to have been announced, but 12 weeks suggests that the closing date was to have been August 24, 1980.

The production received generally favorable reviews, although Walter Kerr in the New York Times found Dick Van Dyke miscast as Harold Hill. There were some naysayers among the critics, but Variety tabulated the reviews it counted as seven favorable and one “inconclusive” (Kerr’s review having been the inconclusive one). Nonetheless, there was little interest from ticket buyers, and the limited engagement ended up significantly more limited than originally planned.
