Trivia & History

No musical numbers were listed in the playbill. We have included a list of musical numbers based on the titles in the published script of the Manheim-Willett translation (which was used in this production, although with differences from the published version) and the cast recording of the production. We have adjusted song sequence and performers based on what is known to have been done in the production.

Early in the run, the roles of A Contable and the Messenger were not listed in the playbill.
