About You Can’t Take it With You:
Tony, Emmy, and Golden Globe-winner James Earl Jones returns to Broadway in critics’ pick You Can’t Take it With You - after more than 50 years away from doing Shows on Broadway. You Can't Take it With You is a heartwarming, comedic tale from Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman that follows 2 families whose lives are thrown together when their children become engaged.

If you’re wondering “What to do in New York?” consider attending a performance of You Can’t Take it With You, a Broadway Theater production directed by 6-time Tony Award-nominee Scott Ellis. This touching story examines a familiar life event: boy meets girl and they fall in love.

While it would be wonderful to think that true love should flow and progress smoothly, You Can’t Take it With You points out that sometimes having what we want means overcoming obstacles along the way. As we get to know Tony and Alice – You Can’t Take it With You’s main characters – we see that often happiness comes because we’ve weathered the storm, not from a life without it.

Tony and Alice have to deal with a few complications on their path to married bliss: one unconventional family and another that is pretty miserable. The happy ending that the pair hopes for is diverted off course just a bit, as they navigate uncharted waters and learn to make sense of in-laws - and each other.

Will Tony and Alice – who are very much in love – be able to cope with the differences in their 2 families? Can a marriage even work between them? Find out if love really does reign supreme and if it actually trumps family loyalty in You Can’t Take it With You - one of the top Shows on Broadway.
