Anna Shapiro will return to Broadway for the first time since winning the 2007 Tony Award for her direction of "August: Osage County" when she directs Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman's timeless Pulitzer Prize-winning play YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU. It has been announced that the show is to be produced by Elizabeth Ireland McCann and Joey Parnes.



Not seen on Broadway in 27 years, YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU will originate at Boston's Huntington Theatre Company, September 24 to October 24 pending conclusion of negotiations. The Huntington is under the direction of Artistic Director Peter DuBois and Managing Director Michael Maso.



Hart and Kaufman's masterwork portrays the colorful, freethinking Sycamore family and the mayhem that ensues when their daughter's fiancé brings his conservative, straight-laced parents to the Sycamore residence for dinner on the wrong night. Literal and figurative fireworks erupt over the course of the evening in a household that appears to be a madhouse but proves, in fact, to be the opposite: a sanctuary from the lunacies of the outside world.

by Guest Blogger: Karl Kenzler - Jan 29, 2015

Doing a big play like You Can't Take It With You is a lot like doing a musical. Large choreographed sections, lots of entrances and exits - we even have dance numbers and xylophone solos. So, it shouldn't surprise you that our cast loves to sing! Just last week, stage management had to scold us in the middle of act two. Apparently, our impromptu greenroom rendition of Funkytown was so loud it could be heard stage right. The exact quote was, "Seriously, guys, I love you. But it's just too loud." Anyway, I hope you enjoy this short film in which the cast serenades Rose Byrne with our arrangement of the Hall & Oates classic, Sara Smile. (more...)

Julie Halston stops the show with her inspired drunkwalk in Act Two of You Can't Take It With You. But she has greater aspirations than simply comedy. As the result of a lifelong obsession that dates back to her childhood, Julie is doing her part to keep New Yorkers safe. Check it out! And don't do the crime if you can't do the time. (more...)

Actors have a lot of hidden talents. Angelina Jolie is a knife-thrower. Steve Martin plays the banjo. And Colin Farrell is a tremendously skilled Irish step dancer. True story. But that's nothing compared to our cast at the Longacre Theatre. In fact our own Will Brill plays "Ed Carmichael" in You Can't Take It With You and he has a secret skill that qualifies him as a member of the Sycamore family. Check it out! It's magical! (more...)
