Trivia & History

Performances began on June 28, 1977. The press date was July 6. We are counting the performances before that as previews, although some sources list all the performances with one total. Although the total number of performances is sometimes given as 24, it seems that it was probably 23 — 10 performances before the press date, plus 13 from the press date to the closing — due to the cancelation of the performance on the evening of July 13, the night of the 1977 New York City blackout. It is possible that a performance was added to make up for that canceled performance, but given that the New York Shakespeare Festival has rarely added performances to the Delacorte season to make up for performances canceled due to rain, it seems unlikely that a performance was added.
