Broadway production

Sturges wrote Child of Manhattan in 16 days. The out-of-town tryout took place at the Broadstreet Theatre in Newark, New Jersey, where the play received very good audience response.[2]

The Broadway production opened at the Fulton Theatre on March 1, 1932, and logged 87 performances, closing in May of that year.[3] It was produced by Peggy Fears and A. C. Blumenthal and directed by Howard Lindsay.

Critical response was poor, and included such assessments as "Sheer trash," "deeply offensive," and commented on its "bathos and sweetish bosh." Time magazine said that the play was "as silly as it is trite."[2]
