After four previews, a revival opened on February 10, 1977 at the Morosco Theatre, where it remained for six weeks before transferring to the Little Theatre to complete its 92-performance run. The duo then took the show on tour; a revival cast album recorded live at the Arena Theatre in Washington, D.C. was released by DRG.
