The Man Who Came to Dinner
Landmark Radio Theater’s latest production is an original adaptation of the classic 1942 film The Man Who Came to Dinner. It will be performed on stage at the Jeanne Rimsky Theater in Port Washington before a live audience and recorded for online streaming and possible later broadcast. This “old-time radio” production will include period-style station breaks and songs between acts, plus live sound effects.
About the Story
The Man Who Came to Dinner is a satirical comedy about an acid-tongued cultural critic on a lecture tour who condescends to dine with a prominent local family in small-town Ohio, only to slip on the front steps and break his hip. Forced to stay indefinitely to recuperate, he takes over the household and meddles in everyone’s lives, while scheming to keep his own from being upended when his trusted secretary falls for a local newspaper reporter.
