Trivia & History

This production restored a great deal of the music including some that had not been used before. Parts of the libretto were revised and cut and some musical numbers were displaced. Dialogue was added from the novel with the approval of Dorothy Heyward and many ad-libbed remarks from the workscript of the libretto were added for atmosphere.
