Vintage sheet music for the title song of the 1968 Broadway musical, here from the pre-Broadway engagement of the musical at the Shubert Theatre in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with credits for Terrence McNally (who would have his name removed from credits prior to the Broadway opening night) and choreography and musical staging by Hanya Holm, who would be replaced by Tony Mordente for the Broadway engagement.
