Different Stages continues its 2011-2012 season with Kaufman and Hart's YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU, directed by Mick D'Arcy. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this comedy introduces us to the Sycamores, a family that delights in eccentricity. They may seem mad, but they show us that those who pursue convention for its own sake and who need to conform to society's conventions are the maddest of us all. This play about living life to the fullest, following your own dreams, and daring to be unconventional has been a perennial since its debut in 1936.
The romantic leads are played by Chelsea Bunn (Romeo and Juliet) and Tony Salinas (Inherit the Wind), and the bride-to-be's parents are played by Phoebe Greene (Night of the Iguana) and Scot Friedman (She Stoops to Conquer). Her sister and brother-in-law are played by Katie O'Brien (You Better Watch Out) and Tyler Mabry (Sleeping Beauty). Grandpa is played by Norman Blumensaadt (Eurydice). Rounding out the cast are Craig Kanne (The Best Man), Allegra Jade Fox (Into the Woods), Justin Guillory, Ben McLemore (Doctor Faustus), Andy Brown, Julie B. Jones, Steven Fay, (Murder on the Nile) Terrie Cooper (Blood Wedding), Skip Johnson (Twelfth Labor), and Mary Kennelly (Is Life Worth Living?).
