Anna Chlumsky talks her Broadway debut and the next season of 'Veep'

Before Anna Chlumsky’s comic timing returns to television in the fourth season of Veep in April, it is making its debut on the Broadway stage in You Can’t Take It with You.

Chlumsky stepped into the James Earl Jones-starring production of George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart’s 1936 play Tuesday. She replaces Rose Byrne as Alice, the play’s romantic heroine, who is the most down-to-Earth member of the zany Sycamore family. Their wacky proclivities are drawn into even sharper focus when Alice brings home her beau from a tony family.

EW spoke to Chlumsky, who had just wrapped the her HBO show, last week about jumping into the cast, coming to Broadway, and President Selina Meyer. You Can’t Take It with You runs through Feb. 22.

It’s a good thing Veep has already been renewed for a third season because it’s going to take Amy (Anna Chlumsky), Chief of Staff for VP Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), a while to figure out how to balance her professional and personal lives. “This season is about her questioning how important the D.C. life is to her,” Chlumsky says. “It’s been assumed for her for so long that this is the game, she likes to win the game, and this is what it’s all about for her. This is her first time really entertaining the idea that maybe there is more to life.” We will see Amy try to date, Chlumsky says. But, she adds, laughing, “By the end of the season, we still don’t know if she’s any good at that.”

There’s a new episode of Veep tonight at 10 p.m. ET on HBO, but we’re starting the laughs early with Chlumsky. She recently stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test and revealed her most prized pop culture possession, the TV marathon that always sucks her in, the TV moment that made her cry, when she yells at the TV, and the collectibles from her childhood she wishes she still had.
