The show’s book and lyrics are by Dick Vosburgh and the music was written by Frank Lazarus with additional music and lyrics by Jerry Herman, Richard A. Whiting and Johnny Mercer to name a few.
The second act runs on higher octane than Chekov, who was a great comedic writer. The show gives his writing an amped up version when played by to the Marx Brothers. David B. Friedman is witty and quick in this act playing the Groucho Marx character Samovar, a lawyer. Suzanne Slade is a fantastic Gino as is Lauren Lukacek as Pavlenko.
