    If memory serves me right, without using Google, Jerry Orbach was in the original Broadway cast of the musical, “The Fantastics”. This was before his role on the TV series, “Law and Order”.

    • John Wilson, Jr Says:

      Actually he was in the original “Off Broadway” production. Not a major deal, but for a long time it was longest running off broadway play, though, of course, he did not play the role for the whole run.

        Thank you, John. I didn’t know it was off-Broadway. I had forgotten it was the longest running off Broadway play.

    You are correct. The pictures from this video are all of Jerry Orbach in his Fantastic role.

    He won a Tony for his role in Promises, Promises.

    After his death, in his memory, the lights on Broadway’s marquees were dimmed for one minute at curtain time.

    Old favorite in my circle of family and friends. I miss Jerry.

      I also miss Jerry.

      My mother played this song on her hi-fi enough that I learned all the words. I glad she did.
