The cast also featured Helen Hanft, Brenda Bergman, William Duff-Griffin, Maria Duval, Sweet William Edgar, Lee Corbet, Debra Greenfield, Hope Stansbury, and George Patterson, and was directed by longtime Eyen collaborator Ron Link. It played at the Hurrah Discotheque, a trendy dance club on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. It opened on April 16, 1978, and played 84 performances, closing on July 15, 1978."
