Trav. S.D. needs a clown! (August in NY)
My pal (the inimitable Trav. S.D) has a NY Fringe show going up, and he needs a clown. If you don’t know Trav, you must be living under a rock, because he is ubiquitous. He has been staging various events for over 15 years, has written over 100 plays, written a great book about Vaudeville: (No Applause, Just Throw Money, which I interviewed him about on the WELL in 2006.) He’s worked for or with a lot of great companies (including the Big Apple Circus, Theatre for the New City, the Village Voice, and a ton of others) and he writes a great blog Travalanche. In short, you should join the throngs of people that have worked with or for Trav. You’ll be in good company.
Trav S.D.’s American Vaudeville Theatre is staging his 15th Anniversary ExTRAVaganza in the New York International Fringe Festival, mixing the hottest contemporary variety acts with Topsy-Turvy songs and comedy sketches, wrapped in a distinctly pre-21st century package.
