The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University presents:
The Philadelphia Story
by Philip Barry
Feb. 15–19, Feb. 22–26
7:30 pm, Sundays at 2 pm
Emerson Studio Theatre
Socialite Tracy Lord is preparing for her second marriage at the estate of her family. The Philadelphia Lords have all gathered for the celebration. So has Tracy’s ex-husband C.K. Dexter Haven and an attractive reporter named Mike Connor. This makes the weekend a little more complicated. These American nobles handle all with a lot of wit in this classic 1930s comedy. There’s nothing like a high-society wedding for some high-caliber entertainment.
“The Philadelphia Story is an unusual American comedy insofar as it is witty rather than funny, sophisticated without being cynical and open-hearted without being sentimental.”
