  1. Thanks for highlighting The Grabd Tour. I saw the original ( have a window poster) and love the score and the show. But you missed the key point of the plot—the Colonel is an aristocratic anti Semite and he and Jacobwsky are polar opposites. The journey they take helps them to understand each other culminating in the song “You I Like”. This was the theme of the play and the Danny Kaye film, I have spoken to Florence Lacey about the show and she told meJerry Herman hopes the show would launch her to Stardom. My favorite song from the show is “I Belong Here”!
