Preview performances begin tonight for Roundabout Theatre Company’s (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director) Broadway premiere production of Marc Camoletti’s classic farce Don’t Dress For Dinner, starring Ben Daniels as “Robert,” Adam James as “Bernard,” Patricia Kalember as “Jacqueline” and Jennifer Tilly as “Suzanne” with Spencer Kayden as “Suzette” and David Aron Damane as “George.” Don’t Dress For Dinner is adapted by Robin Hawdon and directed by John Tillinger.

{module ad_left_body}Don’t Dress for Dinner, the wildly funny comedy by Marc Camoletti (Boeing-Boeing) will be an affair—or three!—to remember. Bernard’s plans for a romantic rendezvous with his mistress are complete with a gourmet caterer and an alibi courtesy of his friend, Robert. But when Bernard’s wife learns that Robert will be visiting for the weekend, she decides to stay in town for a surprise tryst of her own… setting the stage for a collision course of hidden identities and outrageous infidelities.  The cook is Suzette, the lover is Suzanne, the friend is bewildered, the wife is suspicious, the husband is losing his mind and everyone is guaranteed a good time at this hilarious romp through the French countryside. Tony Award® nominee John Tillinger directs.

Don’t Dress For Dinner opened in Paris in 1987, under the original title Pajamas Pour Six, and ran for over two years. Robin Hawdon’s adaptation of the original French play premiered in London at the Apollo Theatre in 1991 and ran for six years.
