Marx Brothers puzzle #6, once again featuring one of my absolute favorite collaborators, Shannon Rapp, who you may know as Norah Sharpe.

When Alex put out the call for Marx Brothers collabs way back in December, I immediately jumped on this one because it screamed theme potential to me.

It’s always a blast making puzzles with Alex – please appreciate his clues at 42A, 31D, and 55D. Thanks for solving!
I also have a cryptic (gasp) with Will Eisenberg in today’s Lemonade Disco suite – please go check that out too!
