Supposedly the show was well-reviewed in its Wilmington tryout--but Kern 
had been busy in Hollywood and did not see the show until its second 
night in Wilmington and hated the book Hammerstein had provided. He made 
Hammerstein completely rewrite the book, removing several major 
subplots, and what ended up premiering on Broadway was a weak, haphazard 
work. (Unfortunately, the original book no longer exists).

"Heaven in My Arms" is also a notable song from the score.
