You Can’t Take It With You

By George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart Directed by Peter Amster

Act I: 60 minutes; Act II: 50 minutes. One 15 minute intermission

When this 1937 Pulitzer Prize-winner debuted to instant acclaim during the Great Depression, it was clear that Kaufman and Hart had come up with the perfect remedy for the nation’s troubles: laughter and optimism. So it’s no surprise that in the 21st century, it’s still one of the funniest and most endearing plays around. The action centers on the zany inhabitants of the Vanderhof household–a joyous madhouse populated by lovable eccentrics, artists and anarchists. But when granddaughter Alice falls in love with the son of a Wall Street banker, mayhem ensues as values and philosophies collide.
