You Can't Take It With You

New York, NY

A Broadway revival of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, You Can’t Take It With You tells the story of a quirky family living in Depression-era New York City. To create a believable environment for them, Rockwell Group envisioned a set that evokes each family member’s eccentricities.

The opening scene sets the house, and the Sycamore family, as outliers in the city around them.

The vaguely Victorian home is flanked by modern apartment buildings.

The house then rotates 140 degrees to reveal a home cluttered with art, books, and curiosities.

The home’s interiors are influenced by the Sir John Soane Museum in London.
The combined elements portray each of the character’s personalities in one setting.

Every inch of the set evokes the family’s personality.


A grand staircase leads to a balcony that helps encompass the action of 16 actors during three acts. As each act concludes, the set revolves back to its facade.
