Trivia & History

Although the performance total for the run is often listed as 888, that seems to be incorrect. The production ran 111 weeks, and it seems that some sources simply multiplied that by 8 and got 888. But the first week of the Broadway run, the production played 2 previews and 4 performances. Variety, covering the show's statistics in its issue of December 19, 1956 (the week after the show closed). listed the total as having been 884, which would be correct for 110 full weeks and a first week of 4 performances. It's possible that there were weeks when it played more than 8 performances and perhaps it did actually play 888, but we are trusting Variety on this.
