    Synopsis: 

    2-time Tony winner Gerald Guiterrez directs the Broadway revival of George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber's play, Dinner at Eight. The play tells the tale of a socially scheming Park Avenue hostess who performs a series of clever manipulations to bring about a dinner party for an aristocratic English couple. In the process, she largely ignores the troubles facing her ailing husband and unwittingly her choice of guests creates a web of intrigue, malice, and romance as her perfect evening soon begins to unravel.

    Setting the Table for Indigestion

    Ben Brantley

    December 20, 2002: If you plan to spend time on a sinking ship, it might as well be the Titanic. The main characters in George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber's ''Dinner at Eight,'' which has been given a sumptuous shop window of a revival by Lincoln Center Theater, are headed straight for icebergs in their lives. It is, after all, the height of the Depression, and fortunes tumble daily. But at least these endangered sybarites will be going down in style, with silks and furs to fend off mortal chills and crystal chandeliers to light their paths to doom.
