Little Rock connection: Appeared at Robinson Auditorium in 1941. The couple often toured the country in their Broadway plays. This appearance was probably in the Pulitzer Prize winning There Shall Be No Night which had been their 1940 Broadway success.
Tony Awards connection: The couple received a special mounted dual Tony Award in 1970.
Lunt received a 1954 Tony for directing Audrey Hepburn in Ondine. The next year he received a Tony for acting in the play Quadrille. In 1959, he received a Tony nomination for his performance in the play The Visit, his final Broadway appearance as an actor.
Fontanne was nominated for her performance in The Visit, which was her final Broadway appearance.
Most of this couple’s career predated the Tony Awards. Tony nominations weren’t announced until 1956, so it is unknown whether Fontanne received a nomination for Quadrille.
