It’s ridiculous — and it’s moving to New York!

The Most Ridiculous Thing You Ever Hoid, a delightfully zany Marx Brothers-themed musical by our friend Jim Beckerman (book, lyrics, music) and his collaborators Andy Seiler (book, lyrics) and Fred Wemyss (book), is making a big move to New York City this week when it opens at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 30, at Urban Stages as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival.

We wrote about this show last year, when it had its premiere production with the Bergen County Players in Oradell, N.J. It’s great entertainment, with wonderful songs and pitch-perfect dialogue.

Here’s a preview of the New York production from northjersey.com.

Don’t wait to buy tickets. Many performances are already sold out and no additional shows will be added. If you miss out now, you’ll have to wait for its next big move. With just a little luck, another production should happen soon.

The Most Ridiculous Thing You Ever Hoid, starting Thursday, Sept. 30 through Wednesday, Oct. 13. Check schedule for showtime. Urban Stages, 259 W. 30th St., Manhattan. (212) 352-3101. Click here for tickets, $20.
