"Meet & Greet" for "Man Who Came To Dinner".

Dan Wackerman, the artistic director of Peccadillo Theater Company warned all the cast members at the "meet and greet" today that if they wanted their friends and family to see "The Man Who Came To Dinner," they should tell them to get tickets IMMEDIATELY.

Because it's an Equity Showcase contract, there are limited seats and limited nights, as well as a limited number of days that this can run. An extension is possible on the next higher up contract, but with a cast of 24, it's very complex, economically. So, I'm warning you, reader, that if you plan to see this, get your ticket as quickly as you can. This classic American play -- even though it's one of the most produced plays in the world -- has only been done in New York three times. This is the fourth.

Anne Kaufman Schneider and Chris Hart, the children of Kaufman and Hart.
Yesterday, also, was the "table read," where everyone just read the play out loud for the first time -- and all I can say is that this is an incredible cast.

When I spoke with Chris Hart afterward, he said what he loved was how down to earth these actors are. They bring a realism to their roles already, and we haven't even had the first rehearsal yet.

So, if you think you are going to be in the NY area for the few weeks this is going to run, get tickets now.
