A nostalgic, outrageous, rollicking, laugh-out-loud Marx Brothers musical comedy. “Disorder is the order of the evening, and lowbrow humor is its highest calling,” proclaimed The Washington Post in celebration of the recent revival of the 1928 comic musical. Animal Crackers takes us into Margaret DuMont/Mrs. Rittenhouse’s oh-so-dignified weekend party as it is upended by Groucho/Captain Spaulding and other dubious guests. Lunacy ensues, dignities are compromised, and romance reigns in a nonstop “profusion of puns, gags, and hysteria with only an occasional pause (or maybe, gasp) for breath.”—The Washington Tribune
