[CANCELED]The Philadelphia Story

John Lamb

The Philadelphia Story

[CANCELED]The last person socialite Tracy Lord wants to see just days before her wedding is her ex-husband, C.K. Dexter Haven. And yet here he is in the family home, welcomed by everyone except her. Self-made man George Kitteridge is to be her new husband, and nobody — including Dexter — thinks Tracy and George are a good match. Then society reporter Mike Connor shows up to cover the nuptials, throwing one more man into the mix. Tracy flirts and argues with all three men and comes to realize there may be a downside to being placed on a pedestal by a man, even if he is your husband. Philip Barry's romantic comedy The Philadelphia Story is shot through with witty dialogue and a mischievous sense of humor, with Tracy as the straw that stirs the cocktail. Clayton Community Theatre presents the comedy at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (March 12 to 22) at the Washington University South Campus Theatre (6501 Clayton Road; Tickets are $15 to $25.
