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.

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,

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."
