Provincetown Theater Announces Cast For Spring Opener, YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU
"I can't think of a better way to kick the spring into high gear on Cape Cod this year than letting Kaufman & Hart's classic romp bounce us into the summer," says Provincetown Theater artistic director David Drake of their spring opener, "You Can't Take It with You."
Since its Broadway debut in 1936, You Can't Take It with You has become one of the most popular and produced plays in American history.

A true classic, this zany screwball comedy unfurls under the bohemian roof of Grandpa Vanderhof's creatively eccentric family - hopping with writers, painters, ballet dancers, xylophone players, caged snakes, a Russian duchess who lives to bake blintzes, and a basement full of firecrackers. When love blooms between Vanderhof's pretty granddaughter and the handsome son of an uptight, conservative Wall Street banker, the collision of their two worlds explodes into laughter! A show for the whole family. (Including pet snakes.)
