Groucho Marx at Black Rock on Friday

October 16, 2014

Comedy returns to Black Rock Center for the Arts in Germantown with “An Evening with Groucho Marx.” The two-act comedy will be at Black Rock Friday, Oct. 17 at 8 pm.

   Award-winning actor/director/playwright 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, Greta Garbo, Marx foil, Margaret Dumont and MGM’s Louis B. Mayer.  Tickets are $32 and are available at the Black Rock box office or online.

   On Sunday, Oct. 19, Chris Brubeck Triple Play will bring their Blues/Jazz sounds to Black Rock at 5 pm. Peter Madcat Ruth (harmonica, guitar, jaw harp, percussion & vocals), Joel Brown, (folk and classical acoustic guitar and vocals) and group leader Chris Brubeck (electric bass, bass trombone, piano & vocals) — bring a rare level of joy, virtuosity, and American spirit to the jazz and roots music they perform. Brubeck first hit the music scene as an innovative rock and jazz musician, eventually recording and performing with his dad, the legendary David Brubeck. His natural talents have made him the go-to composer for genre-bending modern jazz. Tickets are $28 and can be purchased on online or at the Black Rock box office.

   Next week, the Black Rock welcomes Roosevelt Dime, a five-piece Brooklyn-based band, which takes listeners on a journey through the whole of American roots music, from Americana and Memphis soul to "Mardi-Gras"-a bedrock of New Orleans rhythms that brings driving, melodic banjo, fat-back blues guitar, pure honky-tonk harmonies, and deliciously dirty vocals along for the ride.

   Roosevelt Dime performs on Thursday, Oct. 23 at 7:30 pm, tickets are $15 to $28 are available online or at the Black Rock box office.

   On Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 25 and 26, The Black Rock Center will host Taylor 2 a vibrant, six-member touring company. This is an adjunct of the Paul Taylor Dance Company, which brings all the athleticism, humor and virtuosity of Taylor's works to intimate stages everywhere, and they will shine brilliantly in Black Rock's Dance Theater.  During their two-night engagement, Taylor II will present some of the most popular works in their repertoire.

   While in town, Taylor 2 will lead a master-class for Black Rock dance enthusiasts. The workshop is free but reservations are required. RSVP here. Tickets are $15 to $28 are available online or at the Black Rock box office.
