A reconstruction of the hilarious 1920s Broadway musical comedy which starred the Marx Brothers and was adapted for their classic film. The original script was lost but has been reconstructed and enjoyed a triumphant "premiere" at Arena Stage in Washington, DC. Don't miss the first professional production since of this zany, side-splitting musical comedy!
