The Man Who Came to Dinner


THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER is the story of the unsuspecting Stanley family of Ohio, who invite the famous Sheridan Whiteside to dinner. When he slips on the ice and injures his hip, the dinner guest soon becomes a houseguest, who then becomes a most demanding and intimidating presence in the Stanley household. Kaufman and Hart string together a slew of Hollywood and Broadway inspired characters who add to the pandemonium as they bring love, laughter and penguins to the Stanley household. Director Eve Himmelheber says, “I like to think of it as a holiday gift to our audiences: an evening of celebrity-studded high comedy transpiring during the holiday season in the early 1930s.”
