You Never Can Tell, press notes state, is "a charming light comedy set in an English seaside hotel and involves mistaken identities, a world famous authoress, a long-lost father, a dentist, a dream and a masquerade ball. In the course of a single summer day, everyone’s life is turned upside down, while the patient and wise hotel waiter dispenses his wisdom with the insightful phrase, 'You never can tell!'"
Past participants include Blair Brown, Mark Kudisch, Kerry Butler, Tyne Daly, Jonathan Hadary, Daniel Jenkins, Rebecca Luker, Michael Cerveris, Karen Ziemba, Michele Pawk, Bruce Vilanch, Jack Gilpin and George S. Irving.
