The Constant Wife (Play) Broadway 1951

Katharine Cornell - Robert Fleming - John Emery


The play was first produced at the Ohio Theatre (Loudonville) Ohio, on November 1, 1926, with Ethel Barrymore playing the title role, and Mabel Terry-Lewis, and C. Aubrey Smith as support. It ran on Broadway for 295 performances, and was successfully toured by Ms. Barrymore afterwards. When the first edition of the play was published in 1927 Maugham dedicated it to her. Years later, he said that her performance was the best he had seen in any of his plays.

In December 1951, a revival starring Katharine Cornell was staged for a summer festival in Colorado. It was such a success that Cornell took the production to the National Theatre on Broadway starring herself and Brian Aherne. It grossed more money for Cornell's production company than any play she and her husband-director Guthrie McClintic ever produced.
