Tickets are now available for the Broadway revival of Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman’s You Can’t Take It With You, starring Tony winner James Earl Jones and Tony nominee Kristine Nielsen. Directed by Scott Ellis, performances of the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama will begin on August 26. Opening night is set for September 28 at the Longacre Theatre.
You Can't Take It With You introduces audiences to the freethinking Sycamore family and the mayhem that ensues when their daughter's fiancé brings his conservative, straight-laced parents to dinner on the wrong night. The show debuted at the Booth Theatre in 1936 and was last revived on Broadway in 1983.
Jason Robert Brown, who took home two Tonys on June 8 for the score and orchestrations of The Bridges of Madison County, will write original music for the production. Further details, including additional casting and a complete creative team, will be announced at a later date.
