News PHOTO CALL: Animal Crackers Revival Cast Preps Chicago Run
Joey Slotnick, Tony Yazbeck, Mara Davi and company rehearse the upcoming Chicago run of the musical Animal Crackers at the Goodman Theatre.

Henry Wishcamper directs and John Carrafa choreographs the work penned by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind, with music and lyrics by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby. In Animal Crackers, according to Goodman, "chaos ensues at the estate of Mrs. Rittenhouse when a celebrated sculpture is stolen during a party honoring the African explorer Captain Spaulding. A series of madcap Marx Brothers antics follows as the guests set out to find the burglar."

The cast features Joey Slotnick, Molly Brennan, Jonathan Brody, Ed Kross, Ora Jones, Jessie Mueller, Tony Yazbeck, Mara Davi and Stanley Wayne Mathis.

Here is a look at the cast in rehearsal:
