Elaine Perloff, a visitor to our website sent us this ad to us (we had a copy, but this one is better and clearer). She said:

My Husband, Stephen Perloff, Esq. was 8 years old at the time. Stephen told me that Esther Broza was the real producer of the show, but Stan Lee Broza got most of the credit. The (Musical) Director was Merrill Brockway.
