You Can’t Take It With You

In the simplest terms You Can’t Take It With You is about one family that’s wound up too tight, and another that’s way too slack. In more complicated terms it’s about a snake-collecting patriarch who won’t pay his taxes, a ballerina who can’t dance, a freelance printer with a xylophone business on the side, a deposed Russian heiress, and the one daughter in the whole family who’s anything close to normal—oh, and basement full of amateur-made fireworks. But trouble comes into this mix when that one normal daughter falls in love and invites her soon-to-be-betrothed and his straight-laced, Wall Street parents to dinner. What follows is an alchemy of catastrophe and embarrassment that clearly works: in 1937, it became one of the few comedies ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and Frank Capra’s 1938 film adaptation took home the Academy Award for Best Picture.

This star-studded revival sees Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids, Neighbors) as the “normal” one, Alice, and James Earl Jones (Star Wars, the voice you wish your dad had) wearing the comfy slippers of Grandpa Vanderhof. The rest of the massive 22-person cast fills out with an army of Broadway vets, including Mark Linn-Baker (Perfect Strangers) as Alice’s firework-making father, Fran Kranz (Death of a Salesman) as her fiancé, and Elizabeth Ashley (August: Osage County) as the Russian duchess who’s fallen on hard times. From the chaos comes something hilarious, as the New York Times’s Ben Brantley discovered in his five-star review: “The only downside to the unconditional upper called You Can’t Take It With You . . . is that it may strain previously underused muscles around your mouth. That can happen when you spend two-and-a-half hours grinning like an idiot.”
