"As for Amalia's vocal demands, I believe the high note at the end of Ice Cream was not originally written into the score, but that Barbara Cook chose to sing it, setting quite a standard for future Amalias."

I may be wrong but I don't recall ever hearing that.

I do recall Jane Connell saying that Jerry Herman asked her what the highest note she could sing was, and he made that the note at the end of "Gooch's Song." She said something, "Later actresses who played the role hated me for it. And when I came back to the role in 1983, I hated me." I think the note in this case is a B flat. But the Mame score does have an optional lower note (although not much lower: a G), but I've heard actresses sing lower notes than G there.
