Bolton recalls it was the original of this musical in which Ethel Merman made her first appearance on Broadway. Miss Merman had been a secretary until then. But, her clarion voice singing "I Got Rhythm" and "Boy, What Love Has Done To Me," quickly won her Broadway stardom. "Ethel had just turned 21," Bolton says. "And when she sang 'I Got Rhythm' on opening night! she held high C for 16 bars."
