Groucho Marx told an interviewer, later in life, that he wanted to be remembered as being alive. Well, he is -- in the mind, body, and spirit of award-winning Groucho impersonator Frank Ferrante, appearing at the Gordon Center in Owings Mills, MD, Saturday, November 22, 2014, at 8:00 p.m.

Owings MIlls, MD (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

On Saturday, November 22, the Gordon Center for Performing Arts will host An Evening with Groucho, celebrating Groucho Marx, the legendary comic genius, with a performance by internationally-acclaimed Marx impersonator Frank Ferrante.

Julius Henry "Groucho" Marx was one of the best comics of the modern era, a quick-witted film and television star known and beloved in the U.S. and around the world.

Known for his own comic brilliance, Frank Ferrante will deliver to the Gordon Center a re-creation of his PBS, New York and London acclaimed portrayal of Marx in An Evening with Groucho, a rollicking 90 minutes of Groucho improvisation.

The New York Times described Ferrante as "the greatest living interpreter of Groucho Marx's material. A two-act comedy, An Evening with Groucho consists of the best Groucho one-liners, anecdotes and songs. In grand Groucho style, you will literally become a part of the show as Ferrante ad-libs and invites audience participation throughout the performance.

Accompanied by his onstage pianist, Ferrante portrays the young Groucho of stage and film and reacquaints us with the likes of his brothers Harpo, Chico, Zeppo and Gummo, as well as Charlie Chaplin, W.C. Fields, Margaret Dumont and MGM's Louis B. Mayer.
