Note: We included the “original” keys for two of Orin’s numbers from the 1982 off-Broadway production. These “original” keys appear in sequence. When your music director determines the best keys for your production, we recommend that you paper clip the unused keys—this will help to avoid confusion, and eliminate a good deal of unnecessary page flipping.
