“The original Broadway production closed after nine months of performances. Hallelujah Baby had been closed for several months when it won the Tony for Best Musical, beating out The Happy Time, How Now Dow Jones and Illya Darling. (The Happy Time and How Now Dow Jones were both still running at the time.)”
