This is one tricky family dinner we can't wait to attend! James Earl Jones, Rose Byrne and the starry cast of You Can’t Take It With You start performances on August 26 at the Longacre Theatre. Opening night for the Scott Ellis-helmed Broadway revival of Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman’s classic play is set for September 28.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning You Can't Take It With You centers on 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.
The cast also includes Elizabeth Ashley, Annaleigh Ashford, Kristine Nielsen, Byron Jennings, Johanna Day, Mark Linn-Baker, Reg Rogers, Crystal A. Dickinson, Marc Damon Johnson, Patrick Kerr, Will Brill, Fran Kranz, Nick Corley, Austin Durant and Joe Tapper.
