We've just opened the last show in Wayside Theatre's 49th Season, Groucho: A Life in Revue, and audiences and critics alike are really enjoying the show. We've gotten great reviews fromThe Northern VA. Daily and The Winchester Star. You can follow the link to the NVD but unless you subscribe to the Star you probably can't get there from here. More on that in a second.
Anyway, it's a great afternoon or evening of entertainment even if you aren't well versed in Groucho and the Marx Brothers. A recurring comment we hear from Groucho fans over and over is that so much is familiar and so much of it is new information. That shouldn't be surprising given that we all come in contact with celebrities or stars at various points in their careers and lives. Peter Boyer does a fantastic job with Groucho and the rest of the small cast helps bring the rest of the characters that surround him to life magnificently.
As the Winchester Star reviewer says, this is one not to miss and I sure hope you don't miss it between now and April 23.
If you're an iPad user, The Winchester Star just launched its own App for that platform. At the moment its free and you don't need a subscription to read the content. Given the paywall that the paper has for Internet reading, I would imagine that would change at some point in the future though. As to the quality of the App. Well, I'll let you be the judge if you try it out.
