Notes: [LPT #
This was LPT's second production of "The Country Girl" (1953 & 1978).
The play program lists Gail Sternberg as playing "Nancy Stoddard," but 1 out of 3 reviews mentions Kathie Lewis - listed as a crew member in that program - as appearing in that role. Lewis was evidently a replacement.
