Subject: The Funniest Play of the Holiday Season Will Soon Be Here
Yup!  The funniest play of the holiday season will soon be here & Arizona Repertory Theatre anticipates a sold-out run.  Directed by celebrity guest artist, Hank Stratton, THE MAN WHO CAME to DINNER is a classic comedy that always delivers laugh-out-loud fun!  Stratton acted alongside Nathan Lane, Jean Smart & others in the 2000 Broadway revival of the play, which was broadcast on TV & later released on DVD.  Stratton lends his vast experience with this show to UA Arizona Repertory Theatre company actors, who are Wildcat Theatre majors.  Only the best at The UA.  What'd ya expect?

UA's Arizona Repertory Theatre presents THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER by George Kaufman & Moss Hart, directed by Celebrity Guest Artist, Hank Stratton
While on a lecture tour in Ohio during a 1930's holiday season, critic and radio personality Sheridan Whiteside slips on the steps of the prominent Stanley family home, and a tumultuous and hilarious six weeks of convalescence follows at the Stanley residence, incorporating the perfect blend of high comedy and low farce, populated by extravagant but lovable characters.
