About this show

The early true-life adventures of the Marx Brothers and their indefatigable mother inspired this heartfelt, tuneful laugh fest. The long-suffering Minnie Marx, has five teenage sons who keep her life in perpetual chaos. Unwilling to settle for a life of poverty, she encourages the boys to follow their dreams of vaudeville stardom, touring with them through good times and bad. Then Adolph, Leonard, Milton, Herbert and Julius develop their stage personas, and become known to the world as Harpo, Chico, Gummo, Zeppo and Groucho.
