Musical comedy hits the Marx with Ojai audiences
The well-chosen cast members clearly relish their roles and together they manage the dizzying choreography of pratfalls and goofiness beautifully. “Animal Crackers” is a classic and — for youngsters who may say “Who?” — it’s a great introduction to the Marx Brothers. For those in the know, this show will not disappoint and will take you back to all the zaniness and wit that made the brothers famous in the first place.

Animal Crackers: Marxism At Its Looniest
Restaging "Animal Crackers," one of the Marx Brothers’ classic knockabout comedies of the 1920s, is a risky prospect at best. The unique mayhem of Groucho, Chico, Harpo and Zeppo is something that only an expert or a Marx fanatic should tackle. Fortunately, the Ojai Art Center has John Medeiros, a self-described “blithering fanboy” of the madcap Marxes, at the helm of the current production.
