Received two Tony Awards as Best Supporting or Featured Actor (Musical) for "The Music Man" in 1958 and "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" in 1963. This was followed by a posthumous Tony Award Best Actor (Musical) nomination in 1971 for "Lovely Ladies, Kind Gentlemen", an otherwise unsucessful Broadway musical adaptation of "Teahouse of the August Moon".
