Call Me Madam musical (1950)

The premiere of the musical took place in 1950 in the Shubert Theatre, which is in Connecticut. George Abbott was the director, and the choreography was done by Jerome Robbins. Critics and audiences were pretty cool and even contradictory. A week later, the opening took place in Boston, where the reviews were the same unsatisfactory. As the pre-Broadway show was finished and opening on Broadway was pretty impressive, with pre-sale of tickets on USD 2 million. With such a high rate of ticket sales, musical could not go low, so 664 representations have been shown before it was closed. During this time, it earned USD 4 million.

Unlike its first unsuccessful productions with mixed reviews, the Broadway production was bright and had many good reviews. It was given with a number of awards: 4 Tony and 1 Theatre World Award. To this musical on Broadway, the praises were sung, bright, as it is almost a paradise on Earth.
