An eccentric family rattles the chains of their more-respectable neighbors in You Can’t Take It With You, the classic three-act Kaufman and Hart comedy whose prose snatched 1937’s Pulitzer Prize for drama. The players and crew at First Presbyterian Theater revive the lovable oddities of the sprawling Sycamore clan—who include a candymaker and aspiring ballerina, an income-tax protestor, and an amateur pyrotechnician—as they converse and clash with the family of their daughter’s fiancé. An art gallery doubles as the theater’s lobby, where cushy benches invite guests to contemplate the paintings of Justin Johnson, the woodturnings and sculpture of Tim McIntyre, and the question of who lives in the stage sets after the curtain falls.
Though First Presbyterian Theater features discounts for students, seniors, and groups, this Groupon still offers the best deal available for most customers.
First Presbyterian Theater
The theater is part of the artistic arm of the First Presbyterian Church, and auditions for the troupe's roughly six annual plays are open to anyone. An art gallery doubles as the lobby for this 300-seat auditorium, which regularly hosts well-known ensembles, including past acts The King's Singers and saxophonist Ashu.
