It ran for 665 performances. The production came to the United States shortly after on September 16, 1925 and ran for 321 performances.</p><p>The Broadway revival of No, No, Nanette opened in 1971 lasting longer in its revival than the original production running for 861 performances and winning several Tony and Drama Desk Awards. </p><p>Originally a non-musical play titled My Lady Friends which opened on Broadway in December of 1919, the show was financed by producer Harry Frazee who owned the Boston Red Sox. In order to make the funds needed for the play, Frazee traded baseball legend Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees. This resulted in a superstition called the Curse of the Bambino, which many fans believed kept the Red Sox from winning the World Series from 1918 until 2004. </p><p>The song Tea for Two, written by Irving Caesar, begins with the lyrics picture you/upon my knee/just tea for two/and two for tea which were originally just dummy lyrics put in place to figure out the rhyme and rhythm of the song. The producer loved these lyrics just the way they were and kept them. </p><p>No, No, Nanette spawned the musical Yes, Yes, Yvette written by the same lyricist, Irving Caesar. Opening on Broadway in October of 1927, the show only ran for 40 performances, closing in November of the same year. </p><p>Awards</p><p>1971 Tony Award Best Actress in a Musical: Helen Gallagher 1971 Tony Award Best Featured Actress in a Musical: Patsy Kelly 1971 Tony Award Best Costume/Production Design by Raoul Pne Du Bois 1971 Tony Award Best Choreography: Donald Saddler1971 Drama Desk Award Outstanding Book adapted by Burt Shevelove 1971 Drama Desk Award Outstanding Choreography: Donald Saddler 1971 Drama Desk Award Outstanding Costume/Production Design by Raoul Pne Du Bois </p><p>1971 Drama Desk Award Outstanding Performance Starring: Helen Gallagher</p></li><li><p>Patron SurveyPlease take a moment to help us better serve you by completing the following survey.
