The Goodman Theatre's revival of Animal Crackers has announced a one-week extension, and will now close on November 1.

Written by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind, with music and lyrics by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby, the show's action is set in motion when a celebrated piece of art is stolen during a party honoring the African explorer Captain Spaulding. The musical is perhaps best known for its 1930s film adaptation starring the Marx Brothers.

As previously announced, the cast features Joey Slotnik as Captain Jeffrey T. Spaulding, along with Jonathan Brody as Emmanuel Ravelli, Molly Brennan as The Professor, Mara Davi as Arabella Rittenhouse, Ed Kross as Horatio Jamison, Ora Jones as Mrs. Rittenhouse, Stanley Wayne Mathis as Hives, Jessie Mueller as Grace Carpenter, and Tony Yazbeck as Wally Winston.
