You Can’t Take It With You

Mt. Hood Repertory Theatre Company
July 23, 2004

Well-worn encounter between girl’s eccentric but common family and her fiancé’s conservative, snooty counterparts should lead to buoyant and snappy chaos, but prosaic stage business and flat pacing thins the lunacy of this American classic comedy to the point of mere pleasantries. Noteworthy: outstandingly thorough, attractive set by Stephen Kelsey.

Thank you for your kind words about the set. Credit is equally do to the hard work of Thomas Lindley and his crew of student workers.
