“KWAMINA musical opened in out of town tryouts in Toronto, and then ran in Boston. KWAMINA premiered on Broadway at the 54th Street Theatre on October 23, 1961 and closed on November 18, 1961 after 32 performances. It starred Sally Ann Howes, Terry Carter, Robert Guillaume and Brock Peters, and was directed by Robert Lewis and choreographed by Agnes de Mille.
The original cast album was recorded for Capitol Records on Monday, November 20, 1961 following the Saturday closing, two days earlier. A cast album had already been planned based on hopes that the show would be a hit, but Capitol Records, despite the extremely short run of the show, went ahead and made and released the album, and it has since reached a cult status.”
