Sidney Michaels wrote the libretto and lyrics, and the music was done by Mark Sandrich, Jr. together with Jerry Herman. Michael Kidd had directed the Broadway production, which dates back to October 1964, which was able to hold 215 plays in Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. You can evaluate the success of a play as slightly below average.
