You Can't Take It With You

By George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart

Directed by Ron Himes

Bringing two families together is rarely an easy task, but for Alice Sycamore and Tony Kirby, the task is downright impossible! Reacquaint yourself with the zany Sycamores and uptight Kirbys in Moss Hart and George Kaufman’s classic 1937 Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy, You Can’t Take It With You. Hilarity ensues as Alice and Tony navigate pyrotechnics, wild orchid cultivation, income tax evaders, and ex-Russian royalty to unite their odd relations for the sake of love.
