Erik Liberman (right), who played Groucho in the show, was invited to the White House Halloween party (to go as Groucho). The Obamas, apparently Marx Brothers fans, even came up to meet him and touched his costume!

The Huffington Post article, Stage Door: Mrs. Warren's Profession, Alphabetical Order, The Most Ridiculous Thing You Ever Hoid.
"ADORABLE! The jaunty score is filled with lively period-style music and puns. "Babes in Baghdad" and "Oy-ull!" are standouts... Jonathan Randell Silver deserves a shout-out as Harpo, as does Donald Brenner's zippy direction."  – Fern Siegel, The Huffington Post. Read article>>

Talk Entertainment.com article, The Most Ridiculous Thing You Ever Hoid: Marx Brothers at NY Musical Theatre Festival.
"The Most Ridiculous Thing You Ever Hoid" is just that. And tons of fun... Erik Liberman is the embodiment of Groucho Marx. He has the look, the comic timing and the personality down pat. This is a close to a cloning as you can get. He is aided and abetted in his antics by Jared Miller (Chico/Ravelli) and Jonathan Randall Silver as the horn-honking Harpo who is in charge of the sound effects. The rest of the cast couldn't be better to bring to life the endless groan inducing gags, double entendres, puns and play on words and zany antics of the ridiculous plot... The wonderful period songs and production "novelty" numbers – "Babes in Baghdad" and "Slimy Rhythm" – are terrifically staged by director Donald Brenner... The Oilwell Sisters are a harmonious hoot!"  – Oscar E. Moore, Talk Entertainment.com. Read article>>

WillYouMissMe.com article, "The Most Ridiculous Thing You Ever Hoid, a delightfully zany Marx Brothers-themed musical... It's great entertainment, with wonderful songs and pitch-perfect dialogue... Don't wait to buy tickets... If you miss out now, you'll have to wait for its next big move. With just a little luck, another production should happen soon."  – Steven P. Marsh, Will You Miss Me When I’m Gone?. Read article>>
