King Henry II of England has three sons by Eleanor of Aquitaine: Richard, Geoffrey, and John. He wants the kingdom to stay united after his death, but all three sons want to rule and it is likely to be torn apart by revolution. Henry favors the youngest John, while Eleanor favors the eldest, Richard. Middle son Geoffrey hopes to play both ends against each other and come out on top. Henry would like to have another heir by his mistress Alais, but that would only add to the confusion. Uneasy is the head on which the crown lies, and uneasy the truce between a matchless king and queen.

This inspired bio musical about The One, The Only begins with Groucho telling the story of the beginnings of the Marx Brothers, their struggles to make it in vaudeville, their rise to stardom and their eventual break up. Classic Groucho songs, gags and routines are included. Bob Nathan reprises his acclaimed Groucho, while Chico, Harpo, Margaret Dumont and other women who worked with Groucho and the Marx Brothers, are all portrayed in this heartwarming, funny revue. A hit in New York, across the U.S. and in London, this show will delight Marx Brothers fans and the as yet uninitiated.
