Tracy's Tiger was adapted into an original musical in two acts for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's 2007 season.
Review by The Kansas City Star, Dec. 15, 1951 - "Saraoyan's rather fuzzily conceived allegory won't stand any searching analysis, but his tale is pleasant enough, with a few fine humorous touches. Saroyan's work is like certain foods; you either can't get enough, or they turn your stomach. "Tracy's Tiger" is strictly Saroyan, so be guided accordingly."
The book was translated into Turkish in 1964.
