NKU“™s You Can“™t Take It With You Earns LCT Nomination

Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have recognized Northern Kentucky University“™s production of You Can“™t Take It With You with an LCT nomination for featured actress (Abby Wagner) as well as distinguishing it as a recommended production.

You Can“™t Take It With You is one of the most popular and successful plays of modern times, delighting audiences since 1936.  This Pulitzer Prize winning comedy celebrates non-conformity as a man from a family of rich snobs becomes engaged to a woman from a good-natured but decidedly eccentric family.  One dinner party and their families“™ differences ignite!

Panelists commended Abby Wagner, who played the balletically-challenged daughter Essie, for her “œdazzling, loony choreography“ who had “œthe audience in stitches“ with her contortions. Many thought she was the best Essie they have seen performed. Panelists recommended the production as a whole, saying the show “œrendered the benign anarchy that reigns in the Sycamore household with a terrific ensemble cast“ who had “œspot-on comic timing“.

You Can“™t Take It With You continues through October 7th. Tickets can be purchased at http://artscience.nku.edu/departments/theatre/boxoffice.html.

Final LCT awards will be determined at the end of the season and announced at the LCT gala in the spring.
