HOOLIGAN Theatre play preserves era in fall production based on period celebrity class
BY SHAYDANAY URBANI
"Take New York City’s most insolate handicapped celebrity, a pair of convicts, a sassy secretary and a blundering doctor. Now dress them in lots of lace and top hats. Chaos ensues.
Starting tonight, the HOOLIGAN Theatre Company will present The Man Who Came to Dinner, a comedy in three acts about a hotshot 1930s radio host whose outrageous personality makes trouble for residents living in the quaint town of Mesalia, Ohio. The show runs through Monday in the Buenos Ayres room of the Sunset Recreation Center.
The play opens in the weeks leading up to Christmas, as Sheridan Whiteside leaves New York for Ohio for a dinner party with the notable Stanley family.
But the affair becomes a battle between the Stanley family and Whiteside’s celebrity ego after he slips on a sheet of ice outside their front door, prolonging his stay."
