 The Cocoanuts   

Guthrie Theater                  1PM, Saturday
A delightful musical with sun, sand and shtick

The service stinks but the gags are four-star in this Marx Brothers romp, a jazz-age musical with songs by Irving Berlin. Groucho owns a bum hotel in Florida and peddles dubious real estate to gullible Northerners seeking a place in the sun. He’s after a rich society dame, who’s after an eligible match for her daughter, who’s in love with the hotel’s head clerk. Trouble rolls in when the other Marx Brothers arrive and mama’s eligible match turns out to be anything but. This deliciously silly musical is perfect holiday entertainment.


Orpheum Theatre 8 PM, Saturday

BEAUTIFUL – The Carole King Musical

... tells the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from being part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Well and Barry Mann., to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. Along the way, she made more than beautiful music, she wrote the soundtrack to a generation. It is a winner of two 2014 Tony® Awards.

They delivered the papers, until they made the headlines ….

The New York Times calls it “A stirring crowd pleaser”. It has “terrific songs – buoyant melodies by Alan Menken and rousing lyrics by Jack Feldman – and a sweet, funny, emotionally satisfying book by Harvey Fierstein. A musical worth singing about! Even for the cynics among us, “Newsies” has a stirring, old-school sincerity that’s hard to resist.”
