Original 82 page script for the Broadway musical comedy based on the beginnings of the Marx Brothers careers in show business entitled MinnieÕs Boys, book by Robert Fisher and Arthur Marx. Bradbound. Fine copy. The opening night cast included Shelley Winters as Minnie (Mrs. Marx), Lewis J. Stadlen as Julie (Groucho), Arny Freeman as Sam (Frenchie) Marx, Daniel Fortus as Adolph Marx (Harpo), Irwin Pearl as Leonard Marx (Chico), Alvin Kupperman as Herbie Marx (Zeppo), and Gary Raucher as Milton Marx (Gummo). Actor Lewis J. Standlen won the 1970 Theatre World Award and the 1970 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Performance. There was one musical number "Mama, a Rainbow" (sung in the show by Adolph and Minnie), which was later recorded and released by Steve Lawrence and Jim Nabors. Groucho served as a production consultant for the show and made an appearance on the Dick Cavett Show during the run of the musical with the five young actors who portrayed the Marx boys. The script is accompanied by a scarce copy of the LP original cast recording record of this musical play. Bookseller Inventory #
