George Kelly’s comedy, about a blowhard railway clerk and the simpleton he bamboozles into marriage despite her mother’s objections, taps into social currents resonant enough to have inspired five Broadway revivals and three movies. Alas, no play is so solid it can’t be undone by a sufficiently misguided production, and director Stephen Jarrett’s tone-deaf American Century Theater mounting makes the play nearly as annoying as its title character.
