Commentaires longs : The original cast included Julie Andrews (reprising her role in the film). During Andrews' four-week vacation in early 1997, her much-hyped replacement, Liza Minnelli, allegedly stumbled over her dialogue and lyrics and missed nearly as many performances as she played, allegedly due to problems with her knees, although a few months later she checked herself into a rehab center to deal with her drug and alcohol addictions. A videotape of the show though, recorded on a cam from the audience during Minnelli's run, reveals Minnelli in fine form, displaying none of those problems.
Julie Andrews famously refused her Tony Award nomination for Best Actress in a Musical, the show's only nomination. On 5/8/1998, she made a curtain speech from the stage of the Marquis Theatre saying "I have searched my conscience and my heart and find that I cannot accept this nomination, and prefer instead to stand with the egregiously overlooked."
