NY Clown Festival Performances.

Ah, there’s a whole lot of shaking going on over at the Brick Theatre– there’s tons of great clowns that are coming to their hallowed (more likely yellowed) halls for the Second Annual NY International Clown Festival, which means lots of great stuff to see and to write about.

Sadly, I’ll be MIA for most of it– I’m teaching clowning in Rhode Island (university gig as a temporary lecturer for the semester), directing a Dario Fo play in Connecticut (We Won’t Pay), and getting ready to produce a festival of my own- the Fifth Annual Bright Night Providence, RI’s Largest New Year’s Eve Celebration. So I’m busy. In fact, although the clown festival did not choose to hire any of my shows for this year (bad festival, bad!) they did ask me to perform in one of the cabarets. Unfortunately, I’m unavailable on the days of the cabaret, due to aforementioned play (which goes up October 31-November 4) (I’m not seeing the Cabarets on their schedule, even)

There’s so much going on, and I’d like to feature each and every clown in the festival, but I can’t quite promise I’ll have the time (or the money) to see every show, or even close. Your best bet is to check out the Brick website
http://www.bricktheater.com/clown for the full scoop (or at least as full a scoop as you are going to get.)

If you see a show, and you’d like to write a review of it, send me the review, and I’ll post it as a guest post. I will only publish reviews that I like, and that I think give a fair and accurate view of the artist.

I couldn’t find a chronological schedule of the festival, so I made my own. If you are like me, this will help you figure out what you can see and can’t see.

Have fun seeing shows! (and if there are any errors in this table, let me know and I’ll fix them. I am a clown after all!)

UPDATE: It turns out the calendar view of the festival (and much better than mine) is available online through OVATION TIX Of course, I just spent 40 minutes doing all this work, so I am leaving it up as a testament of sorts. (to what, I’m not sure!)
