I've never seen a Marx Brothers anything.  I've read about them a lot.  But that's about it.  This could be my chance.  Animal Crackers just started playing at the Lyric Stage Company and is running until June 4th.   

ANIMAL CRACKERS

by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind
composed by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby
directed by Spiro Veloudos
musical direction by Catherine Stornetta
choreography by Rachel Bertone

MAY 6 – JUNE 4, 2011

DESCRIPTION: Hooray for Captain Spaulding!

Hilarity ensues in this classic 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 1928 Broadway hit and classic 1930 film, this “madcap musical” (Chicago Tribune) features favorite songs including “Three Little Words,” “I Wanna Be Loved by You,” and others.
