Directed by Tony winner John Rando, the production will officially open Feb. 25 and run through March 22 on the Alley's Hubbard Stage.

De Guzman, who starred on Broadway in the 1992 Tony-winning revival of Guys and Dolls, as well as in the Alley Theatre's recent production of Cyrano de Bergerac, will appear as Maggie Cutler in a cast that also features James Black (Broadway's Not About Nightingales) as Sheridan Whiteside and Elizabeth Heflin as Lorraine Sheldon.

Completing the cast are Alley Theatre resident company actors Jeffrey Bean, James Belcher, Bettye Fitzpatrick, Paul Hope, Chris Hutchison, Charles Krohn, Emily Neves, John Tyson and Todd Waite.

According to the Alley, The Man Who Came to Dinner centers on Sheridan Whiteside, "theatre critic, lecturer, and radio personality, who, arriving to dine at the home of the prominent Stanley family in a small Midwestern town, slips on their doorstep and injures his hip. A tumultuous six weeks of confinement follow, during which Whiteside monopolizes the living room and takes over the Stanley household. Before it's over, the outrageous has become commonplace."

Designing The Man Who Came to Dinner are Alexander Dodge (scenic design), Gregory Gale (costume design) and Pat Collins (lighting design).

Tickets are available by visiting AlleyTheatre.org or by phoning (713) 220-5700.

The Alley Theatre is located at 615 Texas Avenue in Houston, TX.
