STATESBORO, Ga. – A talented and energetic actor will bring a legendary comedian to life at Georgia Southern University’s Performing Arts Center (PAC) during “An Evening with Groucho” on Saturday, Feb. 1 at 7:30 p.m.

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, 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 and MGM’s Louis B. Mayer.
