Facts about

The New York production of "Fanny" opened at the Majestic Theater in New York on November 4, 1954 and ran for 888 performances.
Claude Dauphin was considered for the role of Monsieur Brun.
This production of "Fanny" began as a hit Broadway musical in 1954, with the libretto co-authored by Joshua Logan, who also directed the show, which starred Ezio Pinza, in his last stage role before his death, as Cesar, Walter Slezak as Panisse, and Florence Henderson as Fanny. When the musical was filmed, Logan stayed on as director, and the film was faithful to the show, except for the fact that Logan dropped all of the songs and simply used them as background scoring.
