The legendary film and television star Groucho Marx may no longer be with us, but his likeness lives on with Frank Ferrante in An Evening with Groucho, coming to Seattle’s Teatro ZinZanni theatre, this Wednesday, August 10 at 8pm. Directed by Dreya Weber, organizers have this to say about the show:

“Award-winning actor and director Frank Ferrante recreates 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 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, Seattle Music Director 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, Marx foil, Margaret Dumont and MGM’s Louis B. Mayer. A show perfect for all ages!”

You can catch a glimpse of Ferrante’s dynamic stage performance here:
