Commentaires : The show opened on Broadway on May 28 th 1953 and closed after 358 performances. It opened to an enormous advance, and had recovered its production costs within six months. When it closed, after ten months, it had made a small profit of $100,000, and later played a six week season in Chicago. For anyone except Rodgers and Hammerstein this would have represented a success, but the show is usually classed as a failure when compared to their other mega-hits. (An unknown Shirley MacLaine was in the chorus on Broadway, and an equally unknown Shirley Jones was in the Chicago chorus.). Subsequent short-run off-Broadway revivals were staged in 1970 and 2002, but the show has never had a major Broadway revival. This fringe theatre version was billed as its European premiere – 47 years after its first performance.
