FADE OUT FADE IN - THE 1964 BROADWAY MUSICAL

FADE OUT FADE IN, WAS ROLLING ALONG TO BE A HIT BROADWAY MUSICAL.AFTER THE OPENING CAROL BURNETT BECAME ILL AND STARTED MISSING PERFORMANCES. STYNE, COMDEN, GREEN, AND LESTER OSTERMAN SUED BURNETT FOR MISSING SO MANY SHOWS. IT WAS A VERY ''MESSY'' LAW SUIT. THE SHOW CLOSED AND REOPENED IN MARCH OF 1965 WITH BURNETT, WHO ONCE AGAIN BECAME ILL AND MISSED PREFORMANCES. THE SHOW CLOSED AND ''FADED'' IN TO HISTORY. THE FACT THAT BURNETT DID A TV SERIES TITLED ''THE ENTERTAINERS'' AFTER THE SHE BECAME ILL DURING THE 1964 FIRST PRODUCTION, MADE STYNE, COMDEN AND GREEN, THINK THAT IF SHE COULD DO A WEEKLY TV SERIES, THEN SHE COULD TO A BROADWAY SHOW. ALL VERY SAD. BURNETT WOULD NOT TACKLE BROADWAY FOR 27 YEARS.
