The title is derived from the musical Once Upon a Mattress written by Mary Rodgers with lyrics by Marshall Barer and book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer. The play was an adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale The Princess and the Pea, opened in 1959 and starred a still relatively unknown Carol Burnett. The original Broadway production of "Once Upon A Mattress" opened at the Phoenix Theater (Eventually running at a total of five separate theaters!) on May 1, 1959, ran for 244 performances and was nominated for the 1960 Tony Award (New York City) for the Best Musical.
