Distinguished as the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the 1936-37 Broadway season, “You Can’t Take It With You” is a yummy, old-fashioned banana split of a three-scoop, I mean, three-act comedy.
If the Broadway revival that bowed on Sunday at the Longacre Theater brims overmuch with extra nuts, fruits and whipped cream, who can resist such sweet abundance?
Is it possible that you have never seen this ever-popular play? If you know it only from the classic Frank Capra movie, the stage original is a lot more fun. I first caught it at age 14 and have loved it ever since.
