About this show

Hilarity ensues in Animal Crackers, the 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 this "uproarious slapstick comedy" (New York Times). An adaptation of the original Broadway hit and classic film, this "madcap musical" (Chicago Tribune) features favorite songs including "Three Little Words" and others. Hooray for Captain Spaulding!
