You Can't Take It With You: Designer Statements
by Roundabout Theatre Company - Aug 25, 2014

Central to the comic plot of You Can't Take It with You are the eccentricities of the Sycamore family.

Inspired by architectural 'holdouts' that are sprinkled throughout New York City, this image creates a stark contrast between the Sycamore house and the prevailing aesthetic of the rest of the neighborhood -- playfully hinting at the quirky family that the audience is about to meet.
