I saw the National Tour (I guess) in L.A. with June Allyson, Dennis Day and Judy Canova as Pauline. From online search it looks like Sandra Deel did the Helen Gallagher role. It was a big beautiful production but I remember being quite underwhelmed with June Allyson's vocals. I guess she danced well, I don't have that great a memory of it. On the other hand, just a few years ago I saw a staged concert performance featuring the lovely Susan Watson in the Ruby Keeler role, as a tribute to Vincent Youmans (and fundraiser for a theater group for which Watson is on the Board of Directors). It was very entertaining but without a doubt the highlight was Watson doing the full original choreography to "I Want To Be Happy". I know that cast recording so well that I immediately recognized the taps! BTW that cast album is among my top five cast recordings ever, the CD is always in my car. Just listened to the re-issued recording of "Peach on the Beach" today!
