The Cocoanuts review

The CocoanutsIf you liked Animal Crackers two years ago, you’ll love this production with many of same actors returning to their fun-loving roles. The addition to the usual Marx Brothers physical and word playing humor is infectious music. From Irving Berlin! Thanks to deep digging in the Library of Congress by the OSF team, several songs were found that are being heard for the first time here. OSF favorite Mark Bedard is the adapter of this 1920s show and as Groucho adds to his comedic stature. What fun it was to be back with this talented team of laugh makers. And watch out for David Kelly’s scene stealing second act song. Berlin didn’t craft this tune, but that’s all we’ll say.
