* StepfordSmiler: Rosemary looks like she's going to become one (see her EstablishingCharacterMoment, "Happy To Keep His Dinner Warm"). This is clearly played for laughs. It's a tongue and cheek portrayal of a 60's housewife.

* ValuesDissonance: {{Lampshaded}} in a recent Broadway production. When some of the misogyny was booed, Alan Cumming snapped to the audience, "Hey, it was TheFifties!" That ThrowItIn line became used in every performance of the run since.

TheMovie version starring Robert Morse, Rudy Vallee, and Sammy Smith (reprising their respective roles of Finch, Mr. Biggly, and Mr.Twimble/Wally Whomper from the Broadway original) came out in '67. The show was revived on Broadway in '95 with Creator/MatthewBroderick as Finch and WalterCronkite reading the book, for which Broderick won a Lead Actor Tony. Its 50th-anniversary revival in 2011 starred DanielRadcliffe of ''Film/HarryPotter'' fame. In what may be a CastingGag, Radcliffe was replaced by DarrenCriss, of {{Glee}} and AVeryPotterMusical, in January 2012 for a two week run, to be replaced again by NickJonas.
