A quirky, colorful play written by comedy masters George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, You Can’t Take It With You follows the happily dysfunctional and perfectly mad Sycamore family. When Tony Kirby, Alice Sycamore’s handsome fiancé, and his straight-laced, overly-conservative parents come to the Sycamore household for dinner on the wrong night, the house immediately explodes with chaotic hilarity. Directed by Jeff Award-winner William Brown, this endearingly eccentric play reminds us that happiness cannot be bought.
