NOTE: When the original show opened to disastrous reviews the investors demanded that Kurt Kasznar be replaced as producer/director in favor of Sullivan. The original production closed after seven performances. Sullivan felt unqualified to act as director and hired Lew Brown, and the pair quickly hired new actors and songs were added/shuffled. Although Sullivan's reworking failed to completely recoup costs, it was considered a remarkable achievement given the time constraints involved.
