This show made me not only the youngest designer ever to work in Londons West End but also on Broadway when at the age of 21 I designed this show. The show had been running in London for a year when it was decided to open a NY version. I had been out of college just 2 years and could not believe that I was designing a major Broadway musical.
Eventually the show would tour the states extensively and become a stock and amateur staple. And in all 22 other duplicate versions would run around the world and the London production ran for 13 non stop years.
