Before the performance at Tristan Bates Theatre, the 16-strong company of San Domino entertain theatregoers in the bar with some jaunty patriotic songs, with which they lead them into the auditorium. It’s somewhat akin to the chilling scene in Kander and Ebb’s Cabaret when the Hitler Youth sings “Tomorrow Belongs to Me”.

This show premiered in the off-Broadway Public Theater, on 14 June 1978 and closed on 15 March 1981 after 1,165 performances. Directed by Word Baker, the musical written by Gretchen Cryer and Nancy Ford originally starred Gretchen Cryer as Heather; Nancy Ford also appeared later in the run as Heather (as did Betty Buckley). As it closed on Broadway it then opened here for a short run in the West End.
