Witty but acerbic theater critic Sheridan Whiteside arrives in a small town of Ohio just before the Christmas holiday and immediately breaks his leg. Forced to recover at the residence of a rich factory owner Ernest W. Stanley and his family, the high-maintenance "diva" of a host of a national radio program begins to wreak havoc in this 1939 classic and drive not only his hosts but his assistant.
The (BCP) hilarious The Man Who Came to Dinner by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, at the Little Firehouse Theatre closes April 21 at 8pm. Tickets can be purchased online, by calling 201-261-4200, or by visiting the box office at 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell during regular box office hours.
