The Cocoanuts

The Marx Brothers infiltrate the Florida real estate boom circa 1920 and find Margaret Dumont, jewels to steal, pockets to pick, lovers to confuse, hotel guests to confound, and a treasure trove of songs by Irving Berlin. The show that introduced the standard 'Always' in 1925 was a smash Off-Broadway hit in 1997. We are proud to make this historic madcap romp available, so Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Zeppo-brush up your slap-stick and head south for a feast of wild hilarity!
