Harold Prince, Robert Griffith and Frederick Brisson, who produced the show on Broadway, decided early on that Lola had to be portrayed by a dancer.

Have a nice trip?

Good. Now about that job in Chicago.
Just dandy. I got the old boy to embezzle 100,000 dollars and lost it for him at the race track. Then his wife left him and he took to drink. I told him I was through and he jumped out the window... twenty second story.
That's high enough, that's fine.
I wanna try the Empire State Building on this next one.
