Past meets present in this mixed-up delight of a wild satire about sexual and gender politics, identity and repression.

Thirty-seven years since its premiere, the message of  Cloud 9 still resonates in our current social climate when it comes to sexual politics.

Americans pride themselves on their freedom and liberty, but what would happen if a family did whatever the heck they wanted? That’s the Sycamore family in Kaufman and Hart’s classic family comedy  You Can’t Take It with You. This hilarious romp has everything, including the FBI, some odd uninvited Russians and plenty of fireworks!
