New York City Celebrates the Marx Brothers

"You never could tell what you might be dealt in a poker game in those days." -- Harpo Marx, Harpo Speaks

Once upon a time, a hundred years ago, there were four brothers named Leonard, Arthur, Julius, and Milton.

They were just beginning to enjoy some success as vaudeville comedians, when on one fateful night in May of 1914 they were playing poker in Galesburg, Illinois with a monologuist named Art Fisher. In debt to the popularity of Gus Mager's comic strips, Fisher began referring to the brothers by nicknames which reflected their personalities and ended with the letter O. In private, the nicknames caught on right away, though it would be another decade before the boys were officially billed as Chico, Harpo, Groucho, and Zeppo. (In 1918, Milton/Gummo left the act and was replaced by the youngest brother, Herbert.)

This is as good a reason as any to celebrate the work and lives of these great artists. Join us in New York City, the home of the Marx Brothers, for a series of unmissable events in the Marxist month of May, 2014.
