May 9—Jun 15

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.
