Notes

Me, Myself And I was originally presented as a lunchtime revue in the Studio at the Stephen Joseph Theatre In The Round. It was advertised with the title: Me, Myself And I - The Inside Story (the only time it was presented with this title).
The original production was presented in five separate parts: Prologue, Me, Myself, I and Epilogue. This is the only time the revue has been presented this way and was later merged into a single longer revue than five shorter parts. See the note below for performance details of the original production.
Again, unique to the original production was the plays were advertised as: Chapter I - Me; Chapter II - Myself; Chapter III - I; Prologue; Epilogue.
In addition, there were several instrumental only performances of the individual Me, Myself and I parts (see note below).
It is not known why Chapter I: Me was presented practically a month in advance of the first production of Prologue; although as Prologue and Epilogue were purely instrumental performances, it seems plausible to suggest it was deemed more sensible to begin the lunchtime show season with a performance better reflecting the complete piece.
