"This modern morality play opened at the 46th Street Theater on 17 October 1960 with noted Shakespearean actor Maurice Evans in the role of crusading minister, Dr. Brock. Ron Husmann played a reporter for a local 'yellow rag' and Eileen Rodgers played Nita, the elite among the call girls in the District. The production won several awards and one of the songs (Artificial Flowers) cracked the Top 20 on the Pop Charts in a rendition by Bobby Darin. The show enjoyed 216 performances before closing on 23 April 1961."
