VIDEO: Lost Marx Brothers Broadway Musical to be Revived After 90 Years!
According to Classicalite, Marxfest, the first New York Marx Brothers Festival, will be reviving a Marx Brothers musical that hasn't been seen in 90 years. Groucho, Chico, Harppo, and Zeppo got their start in the Broadway stage- it wasn't until later than they became screen stars. And, while many of their stage skits have been recorded, their 1924 Broadway debut was never filmed and never revived.

Scholar Noah Diamond has been researching the show, I'll Say She Is, for the past five years and has been working on reconstructing it. He has been piecing it together from rehearsal typescripts, newspaper clipping, and anything else he could get his hands on. Using what he has been able to find, Diamond has reconstructed the score, story, and antics of the musical.
