Solana Beach, CA. Award-winning actor/director Frank Ferrante re-creates his acclaimed New York and London stage portrayal celebrating America’s greatest comedian – Groucho Marx. You will feel as though Groucho is back, as Ferrante sings, dances and performs classic routines on the North Coast Rep stage, April 23 & 24 at 7:30pm.
The two-act comedy consists of the best Groucho one-liners, stories, routines and songs including “Hooray for Captain Spalding,” and “Lydia, the Tattooed Lady.” The audience becomes part of the show as Ferrante ad-libs his way throughout the performance in magnificent Groucho style. Ferrante portrays the young Groucho of stage and film in a way that is “nothing short of masterful” (Chicago Tribune) and reacquaints us with the humor of brothers Harpo, Chico, Zeppo and Gummo, Charlie Chaplin, W.C. Fields and Marx foil Margaret Dumont. “An Evening With Groucho” is a show perfect for all ages! Dreya Weber directs with accompaniment by Gerald Sternbach.
North Coast Repertory Theatre is located at 987 Lomas Santa Fe Drive, Solana Beach, CA 92075.
