At the first performance in 1985 (which must have been the one you attended), yes, Patinkin started "The Right Girl" and quickly stopped and asked to start it over. (It's often been wrongly said that he stopped "The God-Why-Don't-You-Love-Me Blues" but it was "The Right Girl.") It was just one stop and restart. I think what may have happened was that he may not have been expecting the vamp to start while he was still doing his lead-in monologue. Even if it had been done that way at the dress rehearsal, it still might have thrown him. Patinkin was fine at the second performance.

Montevecchi made a lot more errors on the first night, but she still made one or two on the second night, and she also sped ahead of the orchestra in the last part of the song.
