31 years ago tonight, the now-classic Jerry Herman-Harvey Fierstein-Arthur Laurents opened at the Palace Theatre, where it stayed for nearly four and a half years. The show was nominated for 9 Tony Awards, winning 6 including Best Musical. Of the three Broadway productions so far, the original ran the longest - an impressive 15 previews and 1,716 performances.
