Premiere performance of ‘March No. 1 in D major’ (the famous one) of a series of five marches called Pomp and Circumstance.
The show ends in 1990 after 6,137 performances, and after winning 9 Tony Awards. It re-opens in October, 2006!
It’s shot for $27,000 (it earns that back in 2 theatres on its first weekend) … they spend more than that on the alt-rock Clerks soundtrack! which includes Soul Asylum‘s Can’t Even Tell (MR#15) and Alice in Chains‘ Got Me Wrong (MR#7).
Grossing $3mil (short tail), the film TEARS UP the indie scene. Snoochie boochies!
