The Philadelphia Story

By Philip Barry
Directed by Shawn Douglass
November 15, 2007 — January 6, 2008

One day before her marriage to a successful businessman, haughty socialite Tracy Lord is sure of her herself and her future. However, with the surprise arrival of ex-husband C.K. Dexter Haven and the tempting presence of tabloid reporter Mike Connor, Tracy’s perfect vision of herself is shaken to the core. It will take a bottle of champagne and a compromising situation to crack her forbidding exterior and reveal an understanding heart. This classic comedy of manners finds that sometimes getting what you want means learning to let go.


“Altogether delicious… pure theatrical champagne”
