You Can't Take It With You

Our production has just opened! What stands out about this experience is the teamwork of all the students who have worked on this project the past five weeks. BSC's You Can't Take It With You is the result of innumerable choices within the context of production meetings, rehearsals and work sessions. Its physical world include fireworks, a xylophone, accordian, antique printing machine, 18 unique characters and more.

It's quite a story we get to tell and we're learning a lot in the telling. True, we only opened last evening, but we've played before two audiences, counting Wednesday's open dress rehearsal. The shared experience between our company members and audience is of course, the goal of our process. Needles to say, the more we learn about this fascinating art form the more we learn about ourselves.

I hope you will have the opportunity to see it. We play through Saturday evening, April 24, at 7:30 and then close with our Sunday 2:30 matinee. In this tough patch, You Can't Take It With You celebrates the importance of family and friendship, and making the most of each second.
