Played the lead role in a musical version of "Paper Moon" which toured around the country, headed -- and advertised -- for Broadway. The show never made it - its last performances were at Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey. Also starred in the ill-fated "Steel Pier" on Broadway in 1998.

Did You Know?
[Who responded at the time why his future Trapper John, M.D.
(1979) series' lead and best friend, Pernell Roberts
, left the Bonanza
(1959) series, at the end of the 1964-65 season]: Pernell told me the reason he quit Bonanza
(1959), after the sixth or seventh year, was that he could no longer call a man 'Pa' who was only seven years older than he.
First big break came in 1976, when he was cast in a guest-star role in the CBS series "M*A*S*H".
