Dinner Theater
You Can't Take It with You by Moss Hart and George Kaufman
Thursday, April 5-Sunday April 8, 1990
Hold on to your sanity! Under the Lights is about to take you into the realm of love, craziness, and tax evasion with the timeless classic You Can't Take It with You (1936). Join the eccentric Sycamore family, whose hobbies include writing bad literature, making "love dream" candies, performing dances that would embarrass Baryshnikov, and printing confection messages that proclaim "God is the state: the state is God." If this is not enough to arouse your amusement, do not forget Grandpa, who likes attending commencements for fun; Paul and Mr. Delpinna, who produce fireworks in the cellar; and poor Alice, normal in the midst of chaos. The stage is set for an uproarious time when Alice introduces her fiance, Tony, and his straight-laced family to her fantastic clan. Please join the cast and crew of You Can't Take It with You at the Athenaeum on April 5, 6, and 7 for dinner, or April 8 for brunch.
