What's especially insane about her being overlook for a Directing nom is that the 4th slot went to the director of an English-Yiddish revue called Those Were the Days... so unknown that it doesn't even have a wiki page, that ran for a total of 4 months.

Additionally, I think Schulman is one of the first women to direct a Broadway musical of note... in fact she was nominated the year prior for her "teeny todd" revival of Sweeney... if I'm not mistaken, that nom made her only the 5th woman to ever be nominated for direction of a musical... and she lost her spot to another female director, which was then a very rare thing (though Graciela Daniele was also nominated that year, making her and Eleanor Reissue #6&7 of women nominated in this category.

There must be a story here!
So what was this revue, and why did it or Eleanor Reissue, its director, have the sway or popularity to win a slot for Best Direction? With only 1 other nomination, for Best Featured Actor?
