    Hilarity ensues in this classic Marx Brothers musical when Mrs. Rittenhouse's swanky house party honoring the African explorer Captain Spaulding is interrupted by the pilfering of a prominent painting. Screwball antics arise as the guests search for the thief, resulting in the "uproarious slapstick comedy"(The New York Times). An adaptation of the original Broadway hit and classic film that was a recent hit for the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, this "madcap musical"(Chicago Tribune) features favorite songs including "Three Little Words" and others. Hooray for Captain Spaulding!

      What a wonderful revival of this classic musical comedy. I was so impressed by Ed Hoopman in the role of Groucho--it was as if Groucho had come back to life. Hoopman had Groucho's voice, facial... Expand

      I spent much of Act I trying to forget Harpo and Chico, and spent all of Act II enjoying myself immensely.
