{module ad_left_body}THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER opened at the Music Box Theatre on October 16, 1939 and ran for 739 performances. In the hilarious comedy satire, 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!”

Mary Stout has numerous Broadway credits including Jane Eyre, Beauty and the Beast, Me and My Girl, My Favorite Year, Copperfield, and A Christmas Carol. On TV, Mary is best known as Eugenia Bremer on AMC’s hit series “Remember WENN.” Film: Aladdin, Sweet and Lowdown, Hunchback of Notre Dame, 24 Nights, Holy Man, Made for Each Other, Swimming on the Moon.
