About the Huntington's production:
Malcolm-Jamal Warner (“The Cosby Show”) makes his Huntington debut in Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner directed by Huntington favorite David Esbjornson (All My Sons). Joanna surprises her liberal, white parents when she brings home John, her African-American fiancé, to meet them. Both sets of parents must confront their own unexpected reactions and concerns for their children as their beliefs are put to the test. Set in the 1960s, this funny and poignant new stage adaptation offers a fresh interpretation of the beloved Academy Award-winning film and also features Julia Duffy (“Newhart”), Tony Award winner Adriane Lenox, and Boston favorite Will Lyman.
