The public television version of The Man Who Came to Dinner, from the 2000 Broadway production at the American Airlines Theater on 42nd Street in New York, comes to DVD courtesy of Image Entertainment. The disc has been given 19 chapters for a 166-minute program, which is not really adequate but gives some breakdown of the nearly three-hour production. Chapter seven retains the public television broadcast's background intermission sequence and gives it a separate chapter designation. The latter segment includes a clip of Alexander Woolcott -- the real-life basis for the play's Sheridan Whiteside -- and a discussion by hosts Natasha Richardson and Liam Neeson on the background of the play's authors, Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. That chapter also includes interviews with Kitty Carlisle Hart, the widow of Hart, and Anne Kaufman Schneider, the daughter of George S. Kaufman, describing the two men's friendship, and comments by Jerry Zaks, the theatrical director of the piece (as opposed to Jay Sandrich, who directed this video production). As a video record of a theatrical performance in front of an audience, the disc has the excitement and tension of live theater and the resonant ambience of the hall in which it was performed, and any imperfections have been dealt with before the production got to DVD. The dual-layer disc offers a smooth transition and the platter starts up automatically on the program itself. A three-part menu (one panel for each act, with the appropriate chapters for each) is accessible manually.
