Additional Info

The madcap Marx Brothers musical. A touching, song-filled celebration of the origins of these show-business legends and gutsy, tender, matriarch Minnie Marx, the extraordinary woman who gave birth to a generation of laughter in the form of the maddest, merriest quintet that ever drove a mother-and then the world-wild. This is their story—and Minnie's as well. "Mama a Rainbow," "Rich Is," "They Give Me Love" and the title song are just a few of the catchy, Broadway-style melodies in this hummable score from the composer of Goodtime Charley and Snoopy.
