Here's how the Pecadillo bills the 1939 comedy: "Celebrated critic and radio personality Sheridan Whiteside slips on an icy doorstep while on a December lecture tour. Confined for several weeks of recovery at the Midwestern home of the utterly conventional Mr. and Mrs. Stanley, he proceeds to turn the family’s life inside out with his incessant demands, long-distance phone calls and parade of eccentric celebrity guests. As Whiteside’s secretary Maggie says, 'He would see his mother burned at the stake if that was the only way he could light his cigarette!'"
The Man Who Came to Dinner will have scenic design by Harry Feiner, costume design by Amy Pedigo-Otto and lighting design by Jimmy Lawlor. For tickets, priced $25, phone (212) 352-3101 or visit ThePeccadillo.com. The Theatre at St. Clement's is located at 423 West 46th Street.
