James Earl Jones will star in a late-summer revival of You Can’t Take It With You on Broadway, reports Deadline.com.

George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s 1936 comedy follows the extended, eccentric Sycamore family and what happens when a daughter brings her uptight fiancé and his more tightly-wound parent to dinner.

The supporting cast includes Rose Byrne, making her Broadway debut, as well as Annaleigh Ashford, Kristine Nielsen, Mark Linn-Baker, Crystal A. Dickinson, Julie Halston, Marc Damon Johnson (Lucky Guy), Patrick Kerr (Stage Kiss) and Reg Rogers (Holiday).

The director is Scott Ellis. Further casting is still to be announced.

The show is slated to begin performances August 26 at the Longacre Theatre, with an official opening date of September 28.
