Jeff Brown is the show's director. He's a 40 year veteran with experience in all aspects of theater. Brown has his own take on why this show continues to be an audience favorite. (more...)

Funny it is, exceedingly funny, but only to those who understand the references to the events and people of the 30s. Now, in a finely staged production at Actors Co-op, The Man Who Came to Dinner, like the playwrights' other smash hit You Can't Take It With You, shows just how dull life would be without flagrant eccentricity and staunch individuality.
