The only downside to the unconditional upper called You Can’t Take It With You, which wafted open last night at the Longacre Theater, is that it may strain previously underused muscles around your mouth. That can happen when you spend two-and-a-half hours grinning like an idiot...

----New York Times
This is definitely old-fashioned Broadway entertainment, but in the hands of Ellis and his fine cast, it's consistently pleasurable. "Life is kind of beautiful if you let it come to you," suggests Grandpa, and indeed, the gentle radicalism of that tenet is hard to dispute.

------The Hollywood Reporter
Rarely have I seen such a large collection of scene-stealers on one stage. Check that. There's so much hilarity occurring that no one can steal a complete scene. What these thieving actors do is steal extended moments. They make off with eye-popping sequences that have been carefully focused by Ellis, whose contribution here is impeccable.
