Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman’s The Man Who Came to Dinner is a brilliantly witty madcap play which manages to combine the sophistication of great comedic literature, the frenetic energy of the silliest farce and a genuinely sweet heart into one of the most beloved comedies of the American theater. Filled with fascinating character roles and winking homage to the intellectual and popular culture of the 1930s, this play is both a great period piece and a timeless classic.
