The musical I DO! I DO! starring Mary Martin and Robert Preston was on the Curran stage during this week in 1968. Based on two-hander THE FOURPOSTER, the Tom Jones/Harvey Schmidt musical was produced on Broadway by David Merrick and directed and choreographed by Gower Champion. Carol Lawrence and Gordon McRae played the matinees on Broadway and took over for Martin and Preston when they took the show on tour in March of 1968. The tour was scheduled for 27 cities, but a few months after the playing the Curran, Martin fell ill and the remaining tour dates were cancelled.
