A stage show about Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx, written by Millicent-born former politician Neil Cole, is heading to Adelaide for two performances during the 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival.
Directed by renowned Australian film, television and theatre actor, Don Bridges, the production is a comedy, drama and musical about the greatest comic of all time.
Whilst Dennis Manahan skillfully plays the lead role of Groucho, supporting Actress, Anna Burgess, brings to life the other twelve characters in the play including Groucho’s brothers, Harpo and Chico, his mother, daughters, friends and the piece de resistance, Groucho’s friend Charlie Chaplin.
The magnificent Capri Theatre, built at the height of the Marx Brothers Hollywood success in 1941 is opening its doors to host the performances as part of its first production ever to be staged during the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
“A trip into the past that offers more than nostalgia”
“Manahan pulls out the signature facial
expressions, the physical tics and the vocal style and
suddenly Groucho comes to life.”
