Like our successes at Marxfest and FringeNYC, the 2016 production will only be possible thanks to the friends, fans, supporters, and producers of the Lost Marx Brothers Musical. Won't you join us?

Before their film career, the Marx Brothers were the stars of three Broadway musicals of the 1920s. Two of these, The Cocoanuts and Animal Crackers, live on as films, and stage revivals. But the Brothers' 1924 Broadway debut, a legendary revue called I'll Say She Is, was lost to history. This adaptation, a smash at Marxfest and the New York International Fringe Festival in 2014, is the first production of I'll Say She Is in over ninety years.
