PLAY DESCRIPTION: You Can’t Take It With You centers on Alice Sycamore and her delightfully eccentric family. In the living room of lovable Grandpa Vanderhof folks are free to do as they please, whether that be dancing ballet, writing plays, cooking up fireworks, or defying tax law. But when Alice falls for her boss’s son, Anthony Kirby Jr., the family’s unusual lifestyle threatens the relationship. Alice fears Tony’s father, an uptight Wall Street executive, cannot accept the free-spirited Sycamores. A family dinner to introduce the two families leads to hilarity and multiple arrests. The play’s big question: what will win out – love or social norms.?
There are 17-19 roles for women and men ages 20 to 75, depending on doubling. This production will employ color-blind casting.
Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding is a one-of-a-kind night theatrical experience like no other! Its a comedy staged as a festive celebration in which the audience doesn’t just watch the show, but participates directly in the fun as members of the family or friends of the bride and groom. From the wedding ceremony to the reception, join Tony and Tina’s colorful and madcap Italian-American families in a show you’ll not soon forget.
By blurring the line between fantasy and reality, the show works its magic and draws the audience into eating, drinking, dancing and conversing, just as you would at a real wedding. You will experience (and be part of!) the surprises and drama of a real wedding as you get caught up in the celebration, partying along with the rest of Tony and Tina’s family and friends as if youve known them for years.
Thats how Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding has won over the hearts of thousands of people since the show first opened in New York City in 1988. The longest running Off-Broadway show has since enjoyed extended runs and worldwide success, with performances in over 100 cities across the US, Europe and Asia.
From the first toast to the last slice of cake, critics agree! You’ll want to RSVP today for Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding.

I am so excited to be Directing the new Moon Theatre Company production THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE, ALONG WITH MY Assistant Director Kim Bubon. My Dad was a huge John Wayne fan so growing up we always watched all of the old Westerns. Occasionally you will see a Western film but those films are rare, and a stage show even rarer. This play by Jethro Compton is based on the old John Wayne movie of the same title, however the stage play deviates quite a bit from the film. The play premiered at the Park Theater in London in 2014 to rave reviews. The cast was attractive and edgy and the play tense, dramatic and gritty. Moon Theatre will re-create that sense of drama in the old west with a talented cast and crew on board to craft a production unlike anything that the theatre company has attempted. We are all so excited to explore this tale of love pride and sacrifice set against the windswept backdrop of the old west. Don’t miss it!
See you at the SHOW!!
