Misc. Comments

There is some confusion as to whether there is a chorus per se in this musical. The "Dramatis Personae" page does not list a chorus per se, but the characters list is unusually long for a musical (24 people cannot all be "principals"). But then, the list of numbers lists 3 choruses in Act I (and the final may also contain some chorus work), and at least 3 choruses in Act II (and the final may also contain some chorus work). Tagged as having a chorus for now, but it probably is a chorus containing all or most of the individual characters.
