Portrait of Frank Ferrante as Groucho


The celebrated comedic actor and singer Frank Ferrante commissioned me to create a portrait him in the guise of Groucho Marx.

Frank has been performing his wonderful one-man-show "An Evening with Groucho" for decades to sold-out audiences around the world. http://www.eveningwithgroucho.com

My GENERATION


GENERATION was a 1965 Broadway Comedy that starred Henry Fonda as a father trying to come to grips with his pregnant daughter who is living in Greenwich Village with her nonconformist photograper husband, and has no intention to go to the hospital to deliver her baby. 


The author was William Goodhart. This was his only play. He who would later pen the screenplay for Exorcist II, The Heritic. 

The play received overall lukewarm reviews from NY drama critics, but became popular with older theatre-going audiences who felt they were able to relate to the subject matter, and wanted to see Henry Fonda live on stage. It ran on Broadway for close to a year.

Touring companies revived the play a number of times during the sixties and early seventies with various aging actors in the lead role, and it was adapted and updated into a 1969 film starring David Janssen as the father, with Kim Darby and Carl Reiner.
