        Family can do crazy things to people. And the Sycamore family is a little crazy to begin with. 

        Come join 2-time Tony Award winner James Earl Jones as the head of the wackiest household to ever hit Broadway in Kaufman and Hart’s Pulitzer Prize-winning classic You Can't Take It With You. 

        He plays wily Grandpa Vanderhof, leader of a happily eccentric gang of snake collectors, cunning revolutionaries, ballet dancers and skyrocket makers. But when the youngest daughter brings her fiancé and his buttoned-up parents over for dinner, that’s when the real fireworks start to fly.
