This Broadway hit is about a married man in his fifties who suddenly learns he's becoming a father again. His last child, a girl, was born 24 years ago and, considering the boob she married, he finds the prospect of another unthinkable. His daughter and son-in-law live with him; she gets up for breakfast at lunchtime and he is curiously addicted to solitaire. It's not only the impending birth that startles him; his previously meek little wife begins to lay down the law. There's to be a nursery, a new bath, and she's to have her own checking account. Such dour capitulation you'll never see again.

I have loved this hilarious comedy ever since I first saw it at the Toledo Rep in the mid 60's.  It is very funny.  Some say it is dated but I don't believe it.  Great ensemble cast.  The relationship between Harry and Charlie is definitely a precursor to Archie & Meathead from "All in the Family."  I doubt the fact that both wives are named Edith is a coincidence either.  Great choice for dinner theatre too.  I recommend it.
