Fitzgerald (Amour, Observe the Sons of Ulster...) and Stone (The Smell of the Kill, Design For Living) star as romantic leads Henry Dewlip and his secretary Miss Smith in the Huntington production.

The design team for Springtime for Henry include James Noone (set), David Weiner (lights), Michael Krass (costumes), and Kurt Kellenberger (sound).

Actor Robert Sean Leonard was originally tapped to headline in this Huntington production, but bowed out for the Broadway production of Long Day's Journey Into Night.

London-born Levy's Springtime for Henry premiered on Broadway in 1931. The play was later adapted for the big screen in 1934.
