Trivia & History

David Hummel’s book The Collector’s Guide to the American Musical Theatre gives this recording a date of July 19, 1971. That was the date of Anne Baxter’s first performance, but it seems possible that if the recording was passed along as documenting Baxter’s opening, then the correct date may be July 26, 1971, the date on which the critics were invited to review her. It was reported in reviews that the audience was highly enthusiastic for Baxter at that performance, and a high level of enthusiasm can be heard on the recording. Of course, it may be that a similarly high level of enthusiasm was expressed by the audience on July 19. In any case, we are sufficiently uncertain that we are dating the recordings as being from July 1971 with no exact date.


Among the cast members listed in The Collector’s Guide to the American Musical Theatre as being on this recording are Janice Lynde (the replacement Eve Harrington), Tom Rolla (the first replacement Duane Fox), Peggy Hagan (the second replacement as Karen Richards), and Carol Petrie (a vacation replacement in the role created by Bonnie Franklin, but the character, originally called Bonnie, was reportedly called Nancy during Franklin’s absences from the role). But Penny Fuller (the original Eve), Lee Roy Reams (the original Duane), Gwyda Donhowe (the first replacement as Karen) and Bonnie Franklin were still in the show when Baxter took over, and so we list those performers as being on the recording. It also sounds to us that the people heard as Eve, Duane and Bonnie are Fuller, Reams and Franklin.
