Gimme a Thrill Productions presents a revival of the Marx Brothers' debut Broadway revue, about an heiress looking for kicks. More…
Before they became film legends, the Marx Brothers starred in three Broadway musicals. Two of them, 'The Cocoanuts' and 'Animal Crackers,' were adapted into movies, and are often revived onstage. But the Marx Brothers' 1924 Broadway debut, 'I'll Say She Is,' was lost to history. Drawn from multiple sources, Noah Diamond's adaptation reconstructs, refines, embellishes, and otherwise grapples with this enigmatic entry in the Marx Brothers' canon. This 2014 Fringe Festival hit is enjoying a brand-new, fully realized production.
