Product Description

Groucho: A Life in Revue – DVD Highlights the legendary comedian’s life and amazing career. Written by the ultimate authority – Groucho’s son Arthur Marx -this comedy with music chronicles the unparalleled rags-to riches story of America’s funniest entertainer. Groucho is portrayed by Frank Ferrante, whose more than 2,000 performances in this role have earned him critical acclaim worldwide. This two act play takes viewers through Groucho’s life from age 15 to age 85: as the young vaudevillian…the Broadway and film star…the irrepressible host of “You Bet Your Life”…the reflective octogenerarian in his final years. The show is highlighted by classic Marx Brothers routines, jokes, ad-libs, songs, harp solos, piano trickery and dances. The very human man behind the comic’s mask is also revealed – Groucho the brother…the husband…the family man…the aging wit…all wrapped up in one theatre production. “Groucho: A Life in Revue” entertains as a comedy, a play and as a musical. With ten songs and musical underscore throughout, the score captures the comic genius and wildness of Groucho, the Marx Brothers and the times in which they lived. Also featuring Roy Abramson, Marguerite Lowell, and Scott Greer. NTSC, All Regions. Full Screen 4:3, Dolby 2.0.
