Unsinkable Molly Brown will rank with the great smashhits of theatrical history along side The Music Man Mere diths last Oklahoma South Pacific and My Fair Lady to mention four great ones I am going to have a very special interest in The Un sinkable Molly Brown as I had in The Music Man It was my unforgettable privilege to sit in on a preview of Molly BrowV in the charming home of Mere dith and Rini Willson high on a Brentwood hillside looking down on Mandeville Canyon It was history repeating it self in a sense Five or was it six years ago I saw Music Man previewed in that same setting Then Mrs Hall and our Juilliard daughter were with me Sterling Holloway a film comic was at my side in the Willsons living room as Mere dith and Rini performed for us This time I was accompanied by one of Mrs Halls California sisters My next seat neigh bor on the sofa was Gail Pat rick once of the movies but now a producer of the Perry Mason TV serial Whereas pre viously it had been a twoman show Meredith and it was a fourman show this time Harve Presnell leading man and Richard Morris writer of the book wele on hand ANOTHER THING that should be mentioned is that Molly Brown in July was a very much more perfected show than The Music Man was when I saw the preview of it in 1954 or 1955 A lot of things had to be de cided and done before the Music Man with Bob Pres ton wowed a packed house at Broadways Majestic Theater on the night of Dec 19 1957 Most important a producer had to be found and sold on the play of an lowan who had never before written a play He had many other achievements to his credit but that wasnt among them In marked contrast all of the major decisions with respect to The Unsinkable Molly Brown had been The producer had been chosen the principal characters had been signed up even the date for opening had been tentatively decided As with Music Man the Shubert Theater in Philadelphia is TO be the setting for what is referred to in theatrical circles as the dry run for The Un sinkable Molly Brown The opening date there will be Sept 26 Then after a month of ob servation and possible revisions in the City of Brotherly Love the play will open on Broadway Thursday
