The Man Who Came to Dinner

When: Feb. 11-27 2011

Kaufman and Hart's classic satire of radio personality Alexander Wolcott (who actually starred in one production) was very much a product of its time, but its farcical tone remains entertaining to this day—and the wheelchair-bound Sheridan Whiteside remains one of the most memorable characters of the theater. Stuck in a Midwestern family's house as he recuperates over the holidays, Whiteside makes everyone miserable with his razor-sharp wit as he plots to thwart his loyal secretary's romance to avoid losing her services. First produced at Raleigh Little Theatre in the 1941–42 season, this has been a mainstay of the stage for a reason. Haskell Fitz-Simons directs this production, which runs through Feb. 27. —Zack Smith
