Her next Broadway role came in Arthur LaurentsInvitation to a March, a modern twist on the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale. The plot involved a young bride-to-be who falls asleep whenever her betrothed brings up their all too predictable future. Celeste Holm, Eileen Heckart, Madeleine Sherwood and Richard Derr starred in the production. Stephen Sondheim provided incidental music.

Invitation to a March opened at the Music Box Theatre Oct. 29, 1960, and ran for 113 performances. The play marked Laurents' Broadway directorial debut.
