Trivia & History

Based on a French operetta by Maurice Ordonneau. See Comments.

The original version premi?red in Paris and subsequently played in Berlin and Brussels. It opened in London, 23 Dec 1903, Apollo Theatre, in an adaptation by C. E. Hands with lyrics by Hugo Felix. Unfortunately, this version was unsuccessful. Not until the 1910 version with major score revisions by Hoschna and an almost completely new libretto by Harbach did MADAME SHERRY prove to be a financial and critical success. Therefore, the definitive English-language version of MADAME SHERRY is considered to be that produced on Broadway. We have entered it as a Broadway show.

Shortly after the opening of MADAME SHERRY the Scene 'An Evening on Deck' was changed. The numbers 'Dunnerwetter', 'Mr. Johnson, Good Night', 'Put Your Arms Around Me Honey' and 'The Mad Madrid & The Dance of Danger' were added to 'Serenade' to expand this popular scene. These numbers were also included in the touring version of this show.

The original Broadway version owed at least some of its success to interpolations. It is possible that many of the Goodspeed production additions were interpolated during the original run or tour of this show.
