reviewer brenda murphy
"with the first appearance of jim dale as fast-talking salesman 'professor' harold hill, there was no doubt that the crowd of 8,333 was in for a treat."
"jim dale, a truly marvelous song-and-dance man, was a dazzling prof. harold hill. the part does insist that he move - and that's where dale's performance is most thrilling. he moves with style and grace, slinking almost like groucho on one occasion, strutting like a drum major on another. he dominates the stage and leads the ensemble in some superior work. as a con man he's ultimately devious, always earnest and believable, and if he takes a liking to, say, the arch, we'd better watch out or he'll talk someone into gift-wrapping it for him."
