A NOTE ABOUT THE PERCUSSION PART:


The DX markings on this part (e.g. DX Xylo in 08. Act I /Scene 6 [The Manager's Office]) are because a
keyboard can be used for these notes if required. However on Broadway there are 2 percussionists to
cover everything, playing acoustic instruments, so using more than one percussionist is also an option.
