NotesThere was some confusion regarding the designs for the 1952 production, the 1953 tour, and the 1957 production. An attempt has been made to restore order to the different sets of designs. It is still quite likely, however, that Motley themselves used some of their earlier designs in later productions
this may be the reason why some actors' names on the costume renderings have been erased and replaced by others.
