In the comedy satire, celebrated critic and radio personality Sheridan Whiteside slips on an icy doorstep while on a December lecture tour. Confined for several weeks of recovery at the Midwestern home of the utterly conventional Mr. and Mrs. Stanley, he proceeds to turn the family's life inside out with his incessant demands, long-distance phone calls and parade of eccentric celebrity guests.

“The Man Who Came to Dinner” originally opened at the Music Box on Oct 16, 1939 under the auspices of Sam H Harris.  George S Kaufman directed a cast headed by Monty Woolley (Sheridan Whiteside), Mary Wickes, Edith Atwater & David Burns.
