Groucho: A Life in Revue
Fri - Sun, May 12 - 14, 2017
Critically Acclaimed Story of the Vaudeville Legend


Everyone has a friend who does a great Groucho, right? Your uncle does a great Groucho, you probably think you do a great Groucho, and will spout out a "that's the most reediculous thing I ever hoid" at the slightest provocation. But according to Post Gazette Theater Critic, Chris Rawson, Strand Fan-Favorite JEREMY CZARNIAK, 'is the complete thing, which means not just the physical imitation - that's the least of it, really - but the life within'. Jeremy's portrayal twice won him mentions in The PG's 'Best Actor' Category.


Jeremy is The Strand's Associate Director of Theater Operations, and directs most of our productions.  He's also appeared in several of our most popular and critically acclaimed shows including It's a USO Christmas, The Music Man and I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change.


It's a privilege to bring this show to life at The Strand; one which is very close to Jeremy's heart.  He first brought the role to life at St. Clair High School, followed by its critically acclaimed run at The Hazlett Theater in Pittsburgh, then The Theatre Factory and even took it on the road for a run at The Gilbert Theatre in Fayetteville, North Carolina.



Co-written by Groucho’s son, Arthur Marx & Robert Fisher, this show is an energetic romp through the life of one of Vaudeville’s pioneers. Fast-paced, but also heartfelt & sentimental, A Life in Revue offers music, comedy and drama as it peers into the life of a comic who, toward the end of his life, almost apologizes for it.

Groucho: A Life in Revue features genuine Broadway and/or National/International Tour talent, and top-shelf local & regional professionals, and is the closing production of The Strand's proprietary
Broadway On Main subscription series!  The show is an EXCLUSIVE production of The Strand Theater.  If you don't see it here, you won't see it anywhere else!

Whether or not you're a fan of Groucho Marx or The Marx Brothers, you will love this musical interpretation of his life and times.  This show, and Jeremy's direction and performance, specifically, have won critical acclaim and engaged audiences wherever it's been produced!
