One of Porchlight’s most popular offerings, Porchlight Revisits returns! Now in its fifth year, this special series brings together music theatre aficionados to visit three musicals that opened on the Great White Way but have since gone “unsung.” The finest music theatre artists in Chicago dust off these neglected treasures and, fully staged with script in hand, escort you to the world of Broadway’s past.
A joyful and loving look at the young Marx Brothers as they chart their journey from vaudeville toward Hollywood and their invention of the greasepaint moustache, the honking horn and the tickling of the famous piano keys.
Book by Arthur Marx and Robert Fisher
