Frank Ferrante, award-winning actor, director and playwright, brings the one, the only Groucho Marx to the Veh Stage at Tryon Fine Arts Center on Tuesday, April 3 at 8 p.m. In addition, Mr. Ferrante will conduct a residency with adult and high school students that morning at 10 a.m. at Polk County High School (PCHS).
Groucho Marx was a one-of-a-kind force of comedic nature. Everyone knows the moustache and ever-present cigar, but few of today’s generations had the chance to experience his genius live.
