The song “My Balloon” was recorded by Matti Caspi for hisdebut album and dedicated it in the memory of Roman Sharon (Roman Sharon was a star in a military band and released one album with his name in 1973. In the Yom Hakipurim war he was killed when the jeep he drove to a show drove onto a mine).

Ehud Manor talks about the play:

“The reviews were radical. Haaretz critic, Haim Gamzo, called it ‘A rotten fruit’, and critic Nahman Ben Ammi called it in ‘Maariv’: ‘Brecht 73’. It was interesting”.
