The show was hilarious! I wasn't too familiar with the Marx Brothers but this made me want to rent their movies! Constant hilarity and even the songs were good. Amazing dancing! Loved it and will recommend it to everyone!

Hooray for Captain Spaulding! When a celebrated sculpture goes missing from Mrs. Rittenhouse’s fancy house party in honor of African explorer Captain Spaulding, her guests set out to find the thief in a series of madcap antics and exploits. Based on the original Marx Brothers Broadway hit and film classic, this contemporary adaptation of Animal Crackers is an outrageous, rollicking, laugh-out-loud musical comedy.
