The Man Who Came To Dinner  
Welk Resort Theatre San Diego The Man Who Came To Dinner
 
Famous (and famously arrogant) radio lecturer Sheridan Whiteside gets invited to dine at the house of a rich factory owner in a small town, but slips and injures himself before making it inside in the beloved farce The Man Who Came to Dinner.

Pulitzer Prize-winning duo George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart wrote many comic masterpieces, including You Can't Take It With You and Merrily We Roll Along, but their greatest effort might be The Man Who Came to Dinner.
