Milwaukee Repertory Theater presents: An Evening with Groucho starring Frank Ferrante
Deemed the â€śgreatest living interpreter of Groucho Marxâ€™s materialâ€ť 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 that is perfect for the whole family features the best Groucho one-liners and songs including "Hooray For Captain Spalding," and "Lydia, the Tattooed Lady." 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, Marx foil, Margaret Dumont and MGM's Louis B. Mayer. Called â€śnothing short of masterfulâ€ť by the Chicago Tribune, come prepared to be entertained by the true master of comedy.
An Evening with Groucho begins performances March 24 and runs through May 28, 2017 in the Stackner Cabaret. Opening night is set for Sunday, March 26. Tickets can be purchased online at www.MilwaukeeRep.com, by phone at 414-224-9490 or in person at the Ticket Office (108 E. Wells Street).
