* 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.

Role Association is no longer a trope. Feel free to readd under a better trope if such can be found.
* RoleAssociation: The 2011 production. Go to this show and just listen to the crowd reaction when [[Film/HarryPotter Harry Freakin' Potter]] first enters the stage.

Not tropes.
* BobFosse: Someone else was hired, but proved insufficient. Fosse did the work basically unacknowledged because taking credit would have imploded the other guy's career.

* LyndonJohnson: In the film version, when Rosemary tells Ponty that she doesn't care if he ends up as a window-washer or President of the United States, there is a quick cut to Ponty washing the windows of the White House, and leaning in to say (with a significant grin), "Good morning, Mr. President," to a Johnson-lookalike.
