The Man Who Came to Dinner is Coming to Coronado Playhouse
Coronado, CA. The Man Who Came To Dinner by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, acknowledged as one of the funniest comedies ever written, is coming to the Coronado Playhouse stage June 29 - August 5, 2012.
When a freak accident on the Stanley family’s Ohio doorstep lands venomous theater critic Sheridan Whiteside in a wheelchair, the house is under siege from his extended reign of terror. Hysteria runs rampant as the convalescing curmudgeon interferes, blackmails, lies and runs roughshod over everyone.
This lighthearted romp features Phil Johnson, the prolific and hilarious San Diego favorite, as the acerbic Sheridan Whiteside. The show is helmed by San Diego director, Ruff Yeager, who assembled an award-winning team. “This is a great opportunity,” states Phil Johnson. “Many of us have never worked together before. I believe this mutual outreach benefits all of us in the local theatre world. Thanks to Coronado Playhouse for bringing us all together.”
The Playhouse is integrating some of the top, vast talent in the San Diego area on one stage. Community performers and company members are working with established professionals, bridging the entire world of the San Diego theatre scene.
