"Animal Crackers" at The Williamstown Theatre Festival

  Hooray for Captain Spaulding! The intrepid African explorer, inveterate womanizer, and interminable jokester hobnobs with high society as the guest of honor at a swanky soiree. But when a priceless painting is pilfered, he and the guests are swept up in a screwball search for the thief.

The Williamstown Theatre Festival production of Animal Crackers overflows with mirthful melodies, dynamite dancing, and seriously silly slapstick. Animal Crackers brings a new interpretation of the Marx Brothers’ hit Broadway musical and classic film to the Main Stage.

The show is adapted and directed by Henry Wishcamper and the nine-person cast portrays 21 roles. Henry Wishcamper joins us this morning.
