Tapestry: Theater

The Marx Brothers. We are so excited to collaborate with the Next Act Theatre, the Jewish Film Festival, and the Jewish Book Council for a varied and in-depth cluster of events surrounding Next Act’s production of Groucho: A Life in Review. For those of us who remember their films, and those who discover them (even though their films were in black & white only), they are a comic treasure. Anarchistic, zany, crazed, their humor is hard to imitate.

In addition to the cluster of events surrounding Groucho and his Brothers, the JCC will be providing a full year’s schedule of theatrical opportunities. Click here for the Tapestry Brochure.
