THE MARX BROTHERS’ SUBVERSIVE VAUDEVILLE Now playing at The Trylon microcinema
In the late 1920s and 1930s, the Marx Brothers crafted legendary film comedies from a combination of vaudeville gags, razor-sharp one-liners, and an unparalleled love of causing utter chaos. This spring, the Trylon joyously presents six of their newly restored classics. Sunday - Tuesday in May at the Trylon
