Trivia & History

On May 1, 1954, the theatre column in the New York Times reported that Harold Lang would be withdrawing from the London production of Pal Joey after the performance of May 8. The reason given, which the article put in quotation marks (so it was presumably from a press release or at least from a statement issued by someone involved in the production), was  that Lang was suffering from "an ever increasing fatigue caused by constant performing of the part for two years." (Lang had played the role in the 1952 Broadway revival and then on the tour of that production.)

The article also reported that Richard France, then appearing on Broadway in By the Beautiful Sea, would leave New York two days later (May 3) to immediately start rehearsals in London to replace Lang.
