EARLY INSPIRATION

The spirit of Wits’ End Productions can be traced to 1947. That’s when Phil Erickson partnered with Dick Van Dyke, then a local DJ, to form the “Merry Mutes,” a traveling comedy duo. During the early 1950s, they found success in Atlanta, Georgia where they performed original skits and music on a live, local NBC TV show.

THE ORIGINAL WITS’ END

By the mid-1950s, they each decided to chase their dreams, so Dick headed north to New York City and Phil opened Wits’ End, Atlanta’s first cabaret dinner theater, and formed the Wits’ End Players. A roaring success, the group entertained U.S. Presidents, received a key to Atlanta and had the entire city singing Tearin’ up Peachtree.
