“Ferrante’s Groucho is a tour de force…” – Variety
A show perfect for all ages! Frank Ferrante is the legendary Groucho Marx in this fast-paced comedy packed with songs, stories and inspired audience interaction. It’s 90 minutes of hilarity including the best 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, the Award-winning actor-playwright 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. Performing the role more than 2,000 times Ferrante earned a New York Theatre World Award and a nomination for London’s most distinguished stage honor, the Laurence Olivier Award.
