Richard Henry Lee in ''SeventeenSeventySix'', Lee, who carries some great big wonderful slabs of [[LargeHam roast pork]] while he's singing "The Lees of Old Virginia."" As the next song occurs ''thirty minutes'' later, the writers made this number as big and bombastic as possible to carry the audience through. Ron Holgate, the original Lee, even got a Tony despite the fact that his character appears in all of two scenes and disappears before the second act.
