Groucho: A Life in Revue
Book, lyrics and music by Arthur Marx and Robert Fisher
November 14 - December 8, 2013
Directed by Pam Kriger
Arthur Marx has penned a loving and revealing tribute to his dad and uncles who made up the most famous - and funniest - family of all time: the Marx Brothers. Groucho (Julius) Marx tells the story, from Brooklyn childhood to their start onstage, and all the challenges and triumphs of working with his zany brothers. The boys perform many of their best routines and favorite songs, making GROUCHO the perfect entertainment confection for the holidays.
Milwaukee's favorite Groucho, Norman Moses, brings the grease-paint mustachioed wise-cracker to life once more.
"...GROUCHO has a choreographic grace, its six performers partnering each other beautifully."
"Director Pam Kriger has skillfully guided a remarkably talented troupe... finding the humor and the humanity..."
"The show isn't all about zany antics and good times. The playwright makes it a point to describe the darker side of the show biz life..."
