Animal Crackers

Old Town Theatre
4040 Twiggs Street San Diego

Before the Marx Brothers became film comedy legends, they got their start on the stage. Now you can see the show that helped launch their careers, Animal Crackers, just as audiences first saw it: live! Later adapted for film, this musical comedy made a Broadway sensation of the Marx Brothers' anarchic lunacy, from Groucho's wit to Chico's schemes and Harpo's impulsive pantomime. The wealthy Mrs. Rittenhouse throws a glamorous weekend gathering in honor of the famous explorer Captain Spalding, but Spalding isn't your typical guest of honor, and with the arrival of shady characters the Professor and Mr. Ravelli, the hoity-toity party might not survive the weekend. With a book by George S. Kaufman (You Can't Take It with You) and Morrie Ryskind (My Man Godfrey), plus countless improvised additions by the show's original stars, Animal Crackers is a comedy classic. Now you can relive all the laughs live at Cygnet Theatre in San Diego.
