Marxfest is a month-long celebration of the Marx Brothers, in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of them calling themselves the Marx Brothers. In May 1914, four brothers at a poker table were given names by which the world would come to know them. They sat down as Leonard, Arthur, Julius, and Milton, and stood up—a few dollars poorer, perhaps, but with a future assured—as Chico, Harpo, Groucho, and Gummo.
Marxfest 2014 features films, lectures, burlesque, readings, performances, parties and a walking tour.
