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.

Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum

The Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum was conceived as a place where students and faculty could gather for intellectual discourse in an intimate and relaxed setting and integrate their academic and social lives. Public programs are scheduled Monday through Thursday during the academic year and are publicized through the bi-weekly newsletter, The Fortnightly.

While events are primarily for students, the Athenaeum hosts lunches, dinners, and receptions for academic classes, student organizations, and official functions of the College.
