The Sunday Giveaway: Two tickets to You Can’t Take It With You on Broadway!

Another week, another free pair of tickets to a Broadway show!

And this week, we’ve got two tickets to that classic belly-laugh-inducing You Can’t Take It With You starring James Earl “I Am Your Father” Jones.

You Can’t Take It With You is a classic from the golden age of comedy.  The original production (penned by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman) opened in 1936 and ran for an epic (in those days) 838 performances.  And get this, it also won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937.  (Why is that such a feat?  Well, a comedy hasn’t won that prize in the last 14 years, and there have only been a handful of comedic winners since that Prize started getting handed out!)

You weren’t sure you wanted to see it before, were you?  And now you do, don’t you?

Yep, You Can’t Take It . . . has a huge place in theatrical history, and one of you gets to see it for free.

Here’s how to enter to win:

The play is about a crazy family.

I know what you’re saying, “Crazy family?  Ha!  You haven’t seen mine.”

Tell me which one of your family members or extended family members is such a character, they should be a character!  (Living or not-so-living – so great-grandpa the cad qualifies.)

I’ll go first.  Mine has got to be the great-grandfather cad in my life, Delbert Essex Davenport – the dude who I named my theater after.  Del was married about five times, represented the actual Hilton sisters (the conjoined twins that are the subject of Side Show), and once made up a story about how my mom was pulled  from oncoming traffic by her dog – just to get some press!

Everyone has got a character in their family.  Give me one.  And maybe you’ll win tickets to see the crazies in You Can’t Take It With You.
