A philosopher once called theater “the mask of convention over the face of society in the mirror of the unknown reflecting the rear view of the sports car of destiny.” Simplify this theory with today’s theatrical Groupon: for $26, you get two general-admission tickets to the one-man show An Evening with Groucho at Auburn Public Theater, located in downtown Auburn (a $52 value). Choose from the following performances:

- Thursday, April 14 at 2 p.m. or 7:30 p.m.
- Friday, April 15 at 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, April 16 at 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, April 17 at 2 p.m.
An Evening with Groucho stars award-winning Groucho Marx impersonator Frank Ferrante in a rollicking evening that pays tribute to the bespectacled and mustachioed master of wit. Slinging out Groucho one-liners, anecdotes, and classic tunes such as “Lydia the Tattooed Lady,” Ferrante creates a comedic experience accessible to die-hard Groucho fans and Marx Brothers novices alike. With several moments of ad-libbing and audience engagement, as well as an onstage pianist to provide a little mood music and play a few cuts from Groucho’s solo techno-folk album, the performance paints a precise portrayal of the legendary comedian. The show runs at a fast-paced 90 minutes, with a 15-minute intermission. Call ahead for showtime availability.
