I saw the original the original cast in August of 1982. The energy in the audience was incredible during this number ending in a standing ovation. The crowd was so loud and still cheering that the final moments of Act I were almost missed as The Dreams came on to end the act. I like how you posted it was like Effie was “wiped away” from the group and she was not allowed to end Act I on her song.
We couldn’t wait for Act 2.
Fun note- the night before I saw this show I saw Nine. After the show ended I saw Jennifer Holiday and Michael Bennet on the sidewalk having an argument. I didn’t realize who they were until I walked a bit and put 1+ 1 together.
Looking back I'm so happy I saw this original cast.
