Alfred Lunt (1892-1977, born in Milwaukee, Illinois) performed in, directing and producing over 50 Broadway productions between 1903 and 1962, earning two Tonys near the end of his stage career: one in 1954 for Best Director in Ondine (1954, 157 performances) and one in 1955 Best Actor in a Play in Quadrille (1954-1955, 150 performances).

The play debuted at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. One of these shows was The Guardsman (1924-1925, 248 performances). Both were cast in the 1932 film adaptation of the play, roles that earned them nominations for Best Actor and Actress in a Leading Role.
