News Tory Kittles Replaces Mekhi Phifer in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner With Phylicia Rashad
Tory Kittles will join Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad in the True Colors Theatre production of the classic comedy Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, which will bow in Atlanta in July.

As previously reported, Tony nominee and True Colors artistic director Kenny Leon (The Mountaintop, Stick Fly) will direct the production that runs July 10-29.

Kittles ("Miracle at St. Ana," "Sons of Anarchy") replaces the previously announced Mekhi Phifer (Stick Fly) as  Doctor John Prentice.

Rashad (Raisin in the Sun, Cat On a Hot Tin Roof) will star as Mary Prentice in a cast that will also include Elizabeth Berkes as Hilary St. George, David De Vries as Monsignor Ryan, Andrea Frye as Matilda Binks, Tom Key as Matt Drayton, Tess Kincaid as Christina Drayton, Bethany Anne Lind as Joanna Drayton and Afemo Omilami as John Prentice Sr.

Here's how the classic comedy is billed: "Following a life-altering romance, Joey Drayton brings her fiancé, Dr. John Prentice, home to San Francisco to meet her affluent parents. Their liberal persuasions are put to the test when they find out their daughter's fiancé, while an ideal choice – a handsome, wealthy, brilliant, internationally-renown doctor from a respectable family – is also African-American."

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner will have lighting design by Andre C. Allen, costume design by Jonida Beqo, set design by Kat Conley and sound design by Joseph Monaghan III. For tickets phone (404) 532-1901 or visit TrueColorsTheatre.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner will play the Rialto Center, 80 Forsyth Street NW, in Atlanta.
