You Can't Take it with You

“You’ve got all the money you need. You can’t take it with you. And what’s it got you? Same kind of mail every morning, same kind of deals, same kind of meetings, same dinners at night, same indigestion. Where does the fun come in? Don’t you think there ought to be something more…?”

You Can’t Take It with You introduces the freethinking Sycamore Family and the pandemonium that unfolds when their daughter Alice’s fiancé brings his conservative, straight-laced parents to dinner on the wrong night. Will her firework-making father, manuscript-typing mother, amateur candy-making ballerina sister, xylophone playing brother-in-law and patriarch herpetoculturist grandfather blend with fiancé Tony’s sophisticated family?

Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman’s classic comedy celebrating the importance of family and non-conformity won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the film adaptation won the Academy Award for Best Picture and has been delighting audiences since the 1930s. Act One are pleased to bring their take on this American classic to the Mill Studio this spring.
