    Porchlight Revisits Minnie’s Boys is a joyful and loving look at the young Marx Brothers as they chart their journey from vaudeville toward Hollywood and their invention of the greasepaint mustache, the honking horn and the tickling of the famous piano keys. Minnie’s Boys also introduces audiences to Minnie, portrayed by Shelley Winters in the original 1970 Broadway production, the Marx Brothers’ mother who was the driving force behind the boys’ fight for fame.
