At the 1963 Tony Awards the play received four nominations:-

Actress Dramatic Star – Margaret Leighton

It was beaten in the first three categories by “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” (Director Alan Schneider & Actress Uta Hagen) and somewhat ironically the Design award was won by Sean Kenny for “Oliver” , Sean Kenny having been the designer of the original London production of “Chin-Chin”.
