Pre-Broadway productions have been played totally 73 times, and before the show ran on Broadway, all the tickets were sold-out. All critics sang odes praising the play in advance, even before it was delivered. Another 76 productions later, in 1993, after having been set for only 3 months, production was completed in the Donmar Warehouse (London). Sam Mendes – who, as we all now know, is a talented director of cinema (he shoot the iconic American Beauty with a magnificent Kevin Spacey, gathered more than USD 350 million and has received numerous awards, including several Oscars, one of which is for directing, becoming the sixth in a series of directors, who received an Oscar for his film debut), including two latest filming of James Bonds – which raised more than USD 1,8 billion for two and was the husband of Kate Winslet, whom he met during the making of this musical, being a theater director! What amazing facts and what a charming loop of fate, isn’t it?
The initial composition of the cast included A. Golden., G. Germann, T. Mann, D. Monk, P. Cassidy, & V. Garber.
In 1994, the production began in United States, with sequels in 1998 and 2004. Initially, instead of 2004, it planned to be launched in 2001, but the events of September 11, 2001 moved the premiere, because it contained sensitive content at that time it could affect the success of the production.
Young actor Neil Patrick Harris, who is mostly known around the world for of the series “How I Met You Mother”, played multiple roles in the show, in 2004, under the directing of Joe Mantello.
The revival of production took place in 2012, and its branches – in the form of independent professional productions – occurred in 2006, 2008, 2010, 2014 and 2015. The play was very tenacious and popular.
