Jerry Lewis replaced Victor Garber late in the run on Broadway.

Following the success of my Victor/Victoria online marketing, the producers brought me on board, only to come up with a strategy and build a website later in the run after Jerry Lewis had taken over.  The Jerry Lewis led production later went onto London’s West End.
