We welcome the return of Frank Ferrante as Groucho Marx in An Evening With Groucho. Ferrante does for Groucho what Hal Holbrook does with his Mark Twain tribute: channel a great American humorist. After sold out events last year, we are thrilled to welcome Mr. Ferrante back to our stage with his tribute to the Groucho legacy.
Award-winning actor/director/playwright Frank Ferrante recreates his New York, London, and PBS triumph as the legendary Groucho Marx in this fast-paced comedy packed with songs, stories and inspired audience interaction.
“Nothing short of masterful”
– “Chicago Tribune
The two-act comedy consists of the best Groucho one-liners, anecdotes and songs including “Hooray For Captain Spalding,” and “Lydia, the Tattooed Lady.” The audience truly becomes part of the show as Ferrante ad-libs his way throughout the performance in grand, Groucho style. The New York Times declares “An Evening with Groucho” is “artful…Mr. Ferrante’s timing is digital sharp.”
Accompanied by his onstage pianist, Ferrante portrays the young Groucho of stage and film and reacquaints us with the likes of brothers Harpo, Chico, Zeppo and Gummo, Charlie Chaplin, W.C. Fields, Greta Garbo, Marx Foil, Margaret Dumont and MGM’s Louis B. Mayer. A show perfect for all ages.
