Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Mikado” Starring Groucho Marx Now Available
It’s hard to over-estimate the impact that Gilbert & Sullivan had on early 20th Century American popular culture. In 1960, the Bell Telephone Hour produced a beautiful, hour-long adaptation of The Mikado starring Groucho Marx as Ko Ko alongside Robert Rounseville, Stanley Holloway, Barbara Meister, Dennis King and Helen Traubel. The Mikado was described as “one of the most successful productions in the history of the British stage” listing the Bell-Marx version as one of the most celebrated productions of many generations. The Mikado starring Groucho Marx is now available here.
