Photo Flash: First Look at Bruce Randolph Nelson, Jonathan Brody, Brad Aldous & More in ANIMAL CRACKERS
Center Stage officially kicks off the 2013-14 Season with Animal Crackers, the classic toe-tapping, knee-slapping Marx Brothers musical. Under the direction of BJ Jones, Animal Crackers will run through October 13. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production shots below!
Preview audiences-young and old-have been laughing up a storm at the antics of Groucho (Bruce Randolph Nelson), Chico (Jonathan Brody), and Harpo (Brad Aldous). They are calling it "Great, wonderful fun," "one of the best shows I've seen," a "great start to the season!" and enthuse that "the acting is terrific" and "the dancing is spectacular."
Filled with secret identities, love affairs, and stolen art, Animal Crackers proves the genius of the Marx Brothers is as spot on as ever. This new adaptation by Henry Wishcamper is based on the original book by George S. Kaufman &Morrie Ryskind, music and lyrics by Bert Kalmar & Harry Ruby, and features new orchestrations by Doug Peck.
Animal Crackers runs through October 13. Tickets start at $19 and can be purchased by calling 410.332.0033, or visiting www.centerstage.org. Full information on the season can be found at www.centerstage.org/2013-14season.
