I shot an elephant in my pajamas!

Went to see the 24 hour play last night. My friend was even more ambitious than I had thought as he was attempting to do a Marx Brothers theme! Groucho was decent. Harpo was not bad and Chico was spot on for the majority of the play. My only complaint was that the hands of multiple writers was obvious and that there was a single scene where it was obvious that the writer knew nothing of the Marx Brothers or their comedy. It descended from wisecracks, wordplay, silliness and innuendo into vulgarity which was just plain wrong from Groucho & Chico (Harpo, obviously, was exempt.) Still, the actors did their best and it was mostly a decent effort.

Oh well. Off to work!
