guess whos coming to dinner

The latest production from A.D. Players at The George Theater touches on social and racial issues of the 1960s and brings a classic movie live to the stage in Houston.

From Jan. 29 through Feb. 16, the Players are presenting “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” a Todd Kreidler play that tells the story of a young Joanna bringing her African American fiancé to meet her parents for the first time. The play chronicles both families reckoning with their prejudices as the wedding day nears.

Those who grew up in the 1960s will especially love this film. But the themes it carries are still important today.

The play is adapted from William Rose’s screenplay, which turned into a classic movie starring Katharine Hepburn.


Tickets On Sale Now

The play is open to those who are five years and older. Tickets, which can be purchased here, range from $25 to $75.

There are discounts for groups of 10 or more people.

There are preview performances scheduled for Jan. 29 and 30, which come at a discounted price, and the main run begins January 31. See the complete schedule here.


Enjoy Dinner and a Show

Unique to The George is an opportunity to include dinner with your show. Book your choice of restaurant from the theater’s list of participating eateries, and the box office will take care of the rest.

If you want to make the night really special, consider adding limousine service from Jordan Limousines, which partners with the theater.


Getting to The George

The George is located at 5420 Westheimer Road in Houston. During the month of January and February, the Texas Department of Transportation has shut down the on-ramp to 610 West Loop going south from Westheimer, which is that direction’s exit for the theatre. Make sure to allow for some extra time when driving to the show — especially during rush hour.


A Great Season of Shows at The George

“Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” kicks off the 2020 season of shows at The George. In April, the Players take on “The Spitfire Grill The Musical,” and then the timeless classic, “The Sound of Music,” in June. A complete list of shows can be found here.
