Arthur Marx has penned a loving and revealing tribute to his dad and uncles who made up the most famous – and funniest – family of all time: the Marx Brothers. Groucho (Julius) Marx tells the story, from Brooklyn childhood to their start onstage, and all the challenges and triumphs of working with his zany brothers.??The boys perform many of their best routines and favorite songs, making GROUCHO the perfect entertainment confection for the holidays.



Milwaukee’s favorite Groucho, Norman Moses, brings the grease-paint mustachioed wise-cracker to life once more.
