Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, She Loves Me) will helm the production. Previews begin Sept. 28 at a Shubert Theatre to be announced.
Jeffrey Richards, Jerry Frankel, Steve Traxler, Jessica Genick and Will Trice will produce the production that is expected to employ a multi-racial cast, according to the New York Times.
Here's how it's billed: "You Can’t Take It with You is about the Sycamores and the Kirbys – two completely different families whose worlds collide when their children become engaged. The Sycamore family may seem like the mad ones with their galaxy of unique and zany characters, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder."
The family comedy has been revived on Broadway four times. Its last Main Stem outing was a 1983 production at the Plymouth Theatre that starred Colleen Dewhurst and Jason Robards, Jr.
