The William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum in Midtown and Theatrical Outfit in downtown Atlanta are joining forces for an afternoon combining music and comedy.
The Music of the Marx Brothers: An Evening of Song and Comedy will take place June 2 at the museum and is produced by Theatrical Outfit. The event “will blend songs and anecdotes that paint a hilarious picture of the Marx Brothers’ comic and musical achievements, showing how their Jewish heritage impacted their artistry and point of view,” a news release stated.
The famous brothers revolutionized American comedy in the early part of the 20th century, creating indelible comic personas with their Broadway shows and films that directly impact comedy today. The cast and band for this performance features accomplished local musicians and musical theater veterans.
A reception will begin at 4 p.m., and the concert starts at 5 p.m. The performance is part of the Molly Blank Concert Series, celebrating Jewish contributions to music and made possible by the Molly Blank Fund of the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation. The museum is located at 1440 Spring St. in Atlanta.
Tickets are $50 for museum members 35 and older, $60 for museum nonmembers 35 and older, $30 for young professionals (age 21 to 35) and $20 for students (under 21). For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.thebreman.org or call 678-222-3700.
