I Can Get It For You Wholesale

Posted on February 27, 2023

On this day in 1962, Boston audiences were introduced to a 19-year-old Barbra Streisand and a young Elliott Gould in the new musical I Can Get It For You Wholesale, directed by Arthur Laurents.
Producer David Merrick was among those who saw the importance of Boston tryouts for introducing new stars and playwrights. The production played a three-week pre-Broadway engagement at the Colonial before going on to Broadway.
