You Can't Take It With You

Friday, May 02, 2014 - Sunday, May 18, 2014

Baton Rouge, La

Details

Theatre Baton Rouge’s Managing Artistic Director, Keith Dixon, will present the final show of his ten year stay at TBR this month: You Can't Take It With You. The play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart is set during the Depression and is, on the surface, the story of star-crossed lovers Alice Sycamore and Tony Kirby. Alice lives with her eccentric family, headed by the venerable Grandpa Martin Vanderhof, who doesn't pay income taxes because he doesn't believe in them. Their house is alive with the idiosyncratic pursuits of each of its members; Penny distractedly types away at a novel, Essie dances spontaneously through the house, and Paul works in the basement manufacturing fireworks. When Tony, son of conservative banker Anthony Kirby, brings his parents to meet Alice's family, the clash of values explodes with humorous and life-changing results. The play runs from May 2 to May 18. Tickets are $25 individually, $22 for a group of ten or more, and $15 for students (IDs required). Pay-what-you-can night is Thursday, May 1, at 7:30 pm when all donations will be accepted (but a $5 minimum is suggested). An ASL interpreted performance will be Sunday, May 11, at 2 pm. For dates and times, call the box office at (225) 924-6496 or visit theatrebr.org.
