This chapter presents an overview of the premiere and subequent versions and productions of Regina, beginning with the Cheryl Crawford production, directed by Robert Lewis and starring Jane Pickens, that had a short run on Broadway. The chapter also considers the changes in the text that Blitzstein made for the 1953 and 1958 revivals by the New York City Opera, both starring Brenda Lewis; and yet another version premiered and recorded by John Mauceri. The chapter concludes with an overview of recent productions, including those starring Catherine Malfitano, Patti LuPone, and Lauren Flanagan, and critical reception of the work in modern times.
