Trivia & History

The show toured the US from October 15, 1959 until it landed on Broadway in January of 1961. The following theatres, with no dates given, have been traced via Playbills. Because no dates are given, and the first instance of Jules Munshin joining the company is June 6, 1960.  For the moment, that is our litmus for when the show was in these venues.
