The Little Theatre of Virginia Beach kicks off their 71st season with the classic Moss Hart & George S. Kaufman comedy - YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU!
When Alice Sycamore becomes engaged to her boss’ son everything is new dresses, long lunches and evenings at the ballet. When Tony Kirby becomes engaged to the charming Miss Sycamore, his straight laced, conservative family meets his future in-laws during an evening filled with snakes, firecrackers, and a night spent in jail! You see, the Sycamore family can be considered… eccentric. Whether it’s an artist who took up writing when a typewriter was accidentally delivered to her home, a confectioner ballet dancer married to a xylophone playing printer, or a former Grand Duchess of Russia making blintzes in the kitchen, they are an extended family that marches to the beat of their own drum. Two worlds collide in this madcap comedy where being true to yourself is something to celebrate and we all are reminded that, in the end, You Can’t Take It With You!
“A lot of shows can make you laugh. What’s rare is a play that makes you beam from curtain to curtain.” The New York Times
