Trivia & History

We are counting the runs in Los Angeles (July 19-August 31, 1985) and San Francisco (September 7-November 2, 1985) as tryout runs despite the layoff of more than five monts from the end of the San Francisco run till the start of Broadway previews. When the tryout started, John Bowab was credited as the director, and Gwen Verdon was credited with reproducing the original choreopgrahy, while Bob Fosse was credited as the production supervisor. When the production opened on Broadway, Fosse was credited as director and choreographer. Ads for the Los Angeles run originally listed Fosse as director, but then it was announced that was not truly accurate, that Bowab would be the credited director, with Fosse supervising. By the time of the opening, it was reported that despite the official credits, Fosse had taken over as director for all intents and purposes.
