An Evening With Groucho

April 30, 2017 - May 28, 2017

ONE OF THE GREATEST COMEDIANS Deemed the “greatest living interpreter of Groucho Marx’s material” by The New York Times, Frank Ferrante brings his acclaimed production as seen on PBS and in New York to Milwaukee! This fast paced 90 minutes of hilarity features the best Groucho one-liners and songs including "Hooray For Captain Spalding," and "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady." And don’t be shy – you might find yourself part of the show as Ferrante ad-libs throughout the performance in grand Groucho style. Called “nothing short of masterful” by the Chicago Tribune, come prepared to be entertained by the true master of comedy.

Actor Frank Ferrante talks about the timelessness of Groucho Marx

Published March 25, 2017

Comedy can have a brutally short shelf life. The expiration date on the classic comedic stylings of the Marx Brothers, however, remains far off in the distance. And proving that has been Frank Ferrante's mission for more than three decades.
