Weekend Roundup: April 20 to 22

OPENS APRIL 19 Everyone can relate to that anxious moment when you first introduce your beau—or belle—to the folks. Soulpepper Theatre Company and director Joseph Ziegler take the occasion a step further in a staging of You Can’t Take it With You. Comedy ensues in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart when Alice, perhaps the most sensible member of the eccentric Sycamore clan, invites her paramour and his conservative parents to dine with her family. Young Centre for the Performing Arts, $32 to $68; call 416-866-8666 or visit here for showtimes and
