The play opened on Broadway in New York City, New York, USA on 22 October 1932 and closed in May 1933 after 232 performances. The opening night cast included Constance Collier as Carlotta Vance, Paul Harvey as Dan Packard, Conway Tearle as Larry Renault and Cesar Romero as Ricci (character deleted from the movie).
