FRANK FERRANTE IN AN EVENING WITH GROUCHO
With Musical accompanist Mark Rabe
“Nothing short of masterful” ~The Chicago Tribune
“Artful…Mr. Ferrante’s timing is digital sharp.” ~The New York Times
“See this man. He is comic genius.” ~The Seattle Weekly
Award-winning actor and director Frank Ferrante ignites his PBS, New York and London acclaimed portrayal of legendary comedian Groucho Marx in this fast paced 90 minutes of hilarity. The two-act comedy consists of the funniest Groucho one-liners, anecdotes and songs including “Hooray for Captain Spalding,” and “Lydia, the Tattooed Lady.”
The audience literally becomes part of the show as Ferrante ad-libs his way throughout the performance in grand Groucho style. Accompanied by his onstage pianist, Mark Rabe, 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 and Marx foil Margaret Dumont.
A show perfect for comedy fans of all ages!
