MUSICAL THEATRE GUILD
Los Angeles, CA - Winter 2019
Before Mama Rose there was Minnie, a super-Mom who was the driving force behind the famous Marx Brothers. A vaudeville performer herself, Minnie coaxed, pushed, pulled, and prodded the boys into their now-famous entity. Seldom seen but dearly loved, MINNIE'S BOYS, by Larry Grossman/Hal Hackady has a tuneful and infectious score that takes us through the zany early years of the brothers as they get their start in burlesque. You know their films, but we bet you don’t know how it all started.
The show features a book by Arthur Marx & Robert Fisher, music by Larry Grossman with lyrics by Hal Hackady. J. Scott Lapp directs the show with musical direction by Tom Griep and choreography by Kevin Jenkins. The creative team includes costume designs by Jeffrey Schoenberg & Leesa Freed serves at the production stage manager. Musical Theatre Guild produces the show.
