""Groucho: A Life In Revue" is a fantastic CD that takes the listenter back to the Marx Bros. start in Vaudeville, through thier success of stage and screen, to Groucho's fame on 'You bet your life' and finally to Groucho's final days as the 85 year old 'living legend.' This CD is a wonderful recording of the Broadway show, with the actors giving dead-on performances as Groucho, his brothers, and the people who helped shape his life. Much of the music on the CD were songs that Groucho performed in his films. Numbers such as 'Hooray for Captain Spaulding,' and 'Gallegher and Sheen' reflect the comic music of the time, while later songs, like 'Show Me A Rose' illustrate the tender, human side of the great comedian. In addition to the magnificent music, this CD includes much of the dialogue from the play. You don't have to be a Marx Brothers fan to appreciate the comedy and drama of this wonderful recording. I can't recommend it enough. And if the oppritunity ever presents itself to see the play, by all means go!"
