NEW YORK (AP) -- James Earl Jones is getting some help with his revival of "You Can't Take It With You" -- Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Rose Byrne and Tony Award nominee Annaleigh Ashford have jumped aboard.

Byrne ("Damages") and Ashford ("Kinky Boots") will play sisters in the show, which also will star Kristine Nielsen and Mark Linn-Baker. Previews will begin in August at the Longacre Theatre, with an official opening set for Sept. 28. Scott Ellis will direct.

The play, which won a Pulitzer Prize for writers Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman and initially ran for two years from 1936-38, was last revived on Broadway in 1983, starring Jason Robards and Colleen Dewhurst. Frank Capra directed a film version in 1938 starring Lionel Barrymore and James Stewart.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.

    Heavy thunderstorms swept through the tri-state on Sunday causing flash floods and lightning strikes that injured 3 people. The three men were struck at Orchard Beach in the Bronx Sunday afternoon and were being treated at a local hospital. Meanwhile, various Labor Day weekend celebrations were interrupted, delayed and even canceled as the U.S. Open tennis tournament had to be postponed and the Electric Zoo musical festival on Randall's Island had to be prematurely shut down.
