Freedonia Marxonia: Freedonia Marxonia 2020

Freedonia Marxonia 2020

Freedonia Marxonia 2020 will be held October 1 and 2
at the State University of New York at Fredonia's Reed Library and the 1891 Fredonia Opera House Performing Arts Center.   

2020's theme is "New York City and the Marx Brothers"

New York City was the birthplace of the Marx Brothers - where they spent their early childhoods, performed on stage, starred in three Broadway shows, made two movies, and worked with creative contemporaries.

 

This year's special guest will be Noah Diamond, one of the organizers of New York City's 2014 Marxfest and creative force behind bringing the Marx Brothers' 1924 musical, I'll Say She is,  to the Off-Broadway stage in 2016. 

Noah will bring his 400 Years in Manhattan (with added Marx Brothers content) to the 1891 Fredonia Opera House Performing Arts Center.   400 Years in Manhattan was the winner of the Best Educational Show Award at the 2019 United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City.

Further details about Freedonia Marxonia 2020 will be posted in the coming weeks.

 
Noah Diamond's appearance is supported by a grant from the Carnahan Jackson Humanities Fund of the Fredonia College Foundation.
Freedonia Marxonia is supported by the Hahn Family Freedonia Marxonia Fund of the Fredonia College Foundation.
