buildup for the Nov 3 New York opening In sadness I must tell you that I wont be on hand for the open ing performances But dont feel too sorry for me because Ive seen the delightful show based on a sparkling book by Richard Morris not just once but twice The first time was in the Cali fornia storybook home of Mere dith and Rini Willson perched on a Brentwood hillside overlook ing Mandeville canyon In an earlier commentary I recalled this unforgettable experience participated in by Mrs Halls California sister June Gillette The leading man Harve Pres nell was there with his robust baritone But Tammy Grimes the tempestuous little Molly Brown couldnt make it She had other commitments stage or TV So it fell to Meredith and Rini to double in brass with Richard Morris writer of the book filling in with the dialog and the narration WHOLLY LACKING in stage settings and props I could only appraise the production by its tunes and its story But I threw caution to the fourwinds In my

from the Winter Garden My second viewing of the Molly Brown play came a coupl weeks or so in advance of the Broadway opening at the Shu bert Theater in Philadelphia Thats where The Music Man had its dry run too It could be that Willsons feel that bit of special charm attaches to this spot In Virginia and Washington D C on another mission didnt even try to parry an in vitation to fly on into the City of Brotherly Love for what takes rank as another unforgettable evening with the Meredith Will sons Except for what I saw and heard that night Id never sense how vastly important to the success of a theater produc tion is this period of experimen talion andvrevision in some city other than New York THANKS to some influential intervention by Rosemary Sulli van Meredith Willsons capable secretary I was able to go to the theater an hour and a haU ahead of the curtains rising and sit in on the preliminaries which are never viewed by the ordi nary theatergoer The orchestra under the direc tion of Herbert Green was beine rehearsed in some revisions of the score with Meredith in his outgoing way instructing the in dividual sections about the pre cise effect he was seeking All the while dancers in leotards were practicing little snatches of their dance routine innumerable times What persistence This interlude brought an op portunity to renew acquaintance with Richard Morris whom I had met in
