After a stint in the 1962 flop The Fun Couple, Fonda appeared in the Actors Studio's production of Eugene O'Neill's Pulitzer Prize winner Strange Interlude. José Quintero directed a cast that included Geraldine Page, Pat Hingle and Ben Gazzara.

The production opened Mar. 11, 1963, at the Hudson Theatre. The New York Times deemed it "a brilliant production of gargantuan drama," and critic Howard Taubman wrote that with this revival, the Actors Studio had taken what "may turn out to be a giant step forward for the good of the theater in America."
