You Can’t Take It With You
Laugh heartily and sigh deeply at one of the funniest comedies of the ages. Kaufman and Hart’s batty reflection on the madness of sanity in a mad world remains as insightful and delightful as when it first graced the stage. Tony, attractive young son of the unhappily affluent Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the joyous quirky home of the Sycamore’s, on the wrong evening. In a house where you do as you like, no questions asked - they encounter the open circle of Sycamore family and friends - novel novelist, devoted dancer, ballet master, ex-Grand Duchess waitress, amateur printer, tax evaders, society shirkers and free thinkers and the evening explodes into hysterical, and all too real, fireworks.

A Conversation with Gary Linfoot
Gary Linfoot ... A highly decorated soldier, Gary Linfoot was a member of the U.S. Army’s elite 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne). During his 19th combat tour in Iraq in 2008, his helicopter had a mechanical failure and crashed, leaving him a paraplegic. But thanks to a full-body apparatus developed by California-based Ekso Bionics, Gary Linfoot can now walk. Linfoot is the first veteran to receive the Ekso suit for personal use. In fact, it was on June 25, 2015 that he stood on his own for the first time since his accident – and that was to stand for the National Anthem at Bristol Dragway in Tennessee. In November of 2016, Linfoot walked his daughter down the aisle.
