Trivia & History

This return engagement was advertised as a four-week run, but it closed after a week, despite some favorable reviews, with Brooks Atkinson in the New York Times raving about Holly Harris's performance as Lilli, although he found Robert Wright only adequate as Fred.

It played a Tuesday through Sunday performance schedule, with no weekday matinee. It played matinee and evening performances on both Saturday and Sunday. This was the schedule that had been advertised for the entire four-week run.
