This hallmark of Marx Brothers lunacy was revived on stage by Washington's Arena Stage. Audiences flocked as critics from coast to coast applauded the antics of Captain Spalding and company at Mrs. Rittenhouse's ritzy weekend gathering.

​"Delicious...A nonstop riot" - a profusion of puns, gags, and hysteria with only an occasional pause (or maybe, gasp) for breath. - The Washington Tribune

​"The 1928 Marx Brothers' Broadway musical, lovingly reassembled by Arena Stage...is called Animal Crackers. But you might just as well call it bonkers!...Check your rationality at the door. Disorder is the order of the evening, and lowbrow humor is its high calling." - Washington Post
