That mostly tracks with the story she tells while singing "Zip" though. The monologue before the song mentions having to do a week in New Haven, then the trip up during a blizzard for the opening performance. The next monologue break in the song mentions performance 2 on a Tuesday (that would be December 25) and the last monologue break to finish the song is the 6th day of performances, a Saturday matinee and evening, which would be December 29. Then after the out of town, it sounds like she continued to standby in Call Me Madam while performing in Pal Joey on Broadway. So I think the only exaggeration would be calling (supposedly) the dress rehearsal in New Haven the first performance. But I'm sure there were one or two more days before that where she was traveling back and forth to put the show up in New Haven before the week of performances.
