Anna Chlumsky to Join Broadway’s ‘You Can’t Take It With You’

Anna Chlumsky will step into the Broadway revival of “You Can’t Take It With You” in January, playing the role currently played by Rose Byrne.

Chlumsky, twice nominated for an Emmy for her performance on HBO’s “Veep,” comes on board the Broadway comedy alongside Richard Thomas, replacing Mark Linn-Baker who, like Byrne, finishes up his run with the show Jan. 4.

Chlumsky will play Alice, the daughter of the eccentric Sycamore family, while Thomas portrays Alice’s father in the 1936 play by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. The production’s ongoing cast includes James Earl Jones, Kristine Nielsen and Annaleigh Ashford, among others.

Although director Scott Ellis’ well-reviewed staging of “You Can’t Take It With You,” which opened Sept. 28, hasn’t hit the box office heights of a few other megaselling plays this fall — such “It’s Only a Play,” “The River” and “The Elephant Man” — sales have nonetheless proven solid enough for producers to extend the production’s limited run until Feb. 22.

Chlumsky and Thomas join “You Can’t Take It With You” Jan. 6.
