The Man Who Came To Dinner

Roundabout Theatre Company was proud to announce a 50th Anniversary Season Reunion Benefit Reading of Kaufman and Hart’s The Man Who Came to Dinner starring Nathan Lane, Jean Smart, Harriet Harris and members of the original 2000 Broadway Revival Cast. The Man Who Came to Dinner was the inaugural production at The American Airlines Theatre.  

Set during Christmas in the 1930s, this classic comedy deals with famous radio personality Sheridan Whiteside who is invited to dinner at the home of a rich factory owner. Before Whiteside enters the house, he falls and hurts his hip and ends up staying at the home to recover and consequently terrorizes the lives of everyone in the house.
 
The Man Who Came to Dinner was directed by Roundabout’s Adams Associate Artistic Director Scott Ellis, who directed Roundabout’s production of She Loves Me

Proceeds from the 50th Anniversary Benefit Reading of The Man Who Came to Dinner support Roundabout Theatre Company’s many programs and initiatives, including the Company Archives and Classic Play Production Fund. Classic plays are the founding cornerstone of Roundabout Theatre Company’s mission and the Classic Play Production Fund allows Roundabout to plan future productions that enrich New York City’s theatrical landscape. Roundabout’s Archives preserve materials related to current works and the 50 years of its nationally acclaimed, Tony- and Drama Desk–Awarded productions as well as institutional documents that chronicle how the company grew from a 150 seat off-off-Broadway theatre to the largest not-for-profit theatre in the country.
