You Can't Take It With You

"As near as I can see, the only thing you can take with you is the love of your friends."

Seize the rare opportunity to see a hit screwball comedy on the professional stage. When Alice brings her boyfriend’s traditional, straight-laced family to dine with her household of freethinking eccentrics, fights break out and fireworks erupt. Kaufman and Hart’s 1930s classic, more relevant today than ever, pays homage to those who march to the beat of their own drum and reminds us all to choose dreams over drudgery.
