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”) and Boston favorite Will Lyman.
"David Esbjornson brings a striking contemporary perspective to classics that allow us to experience them in new and unexpected ways. After his astonishing production of All My Sons, I can't wait for him to reveal the emotional and social immediacy of the ideas raised by this landmark film." — Peter DuBois
"Guess Who's Coming To Dinner is a cultural touchstone. Approaching it today, I wanted to talk about and engage in the attitudes of 1967 with a 21st century approach."— Todd Kreidler
"I am delighted to return to the Huntington to present Todd Kreidler's exciting new stage adaptation of what has become a classic American story. We hope that audiences will find the experience of this piece to be compelling, provocative, and perhaps all-too-relevant."— David Esbjornson
