This weekend is your last chance to see James Earl Jones at the Longacre Theater in Broadway’s You Can’t Take It With You, which closes on Sunday. The beloved 1936 play is as much of an American classic as Jones himself is (he was actually born five years before the play was written), and he’s earned rave reviews for his role as family patriarch Grandpa Vanderhoff.

If you won’t have a chance to see Jones in the play before it closes (or even if you do), you’ll definitely want to check out the above video from the New York Times featuring Jones performing his character’s closing monologue from the play. It’s a short clip, but it’s stirring.
