If you happened to miss this amazing show more than a few years ago, do not miss it this time. Brilliantly directed and developed by Eric Davis and the performers, this show come back for a short run at its original home The Brick Theater. It is the only Bouffon show I have every seen that really works theatrically. It has won awards and they are well disserved. They say Tennessee Williams is spinning in his grave! My guess he is laughing his ass off.
The history: in 2006 Bouffon Glass Menajoree premiered in the NY Clown Theatre Festival and continued multiple extensions and a full run at The Brick Theater. After being nominated for 4 NY Innovative Theatre Awards, and winning the Outstanding Overall Production, they returned to the NY Clown Theatre Festival in 2007 a summer run at The Bleeker Street Theatre in NYC, and went on to perform to sold out houses with critical acclaim in the Minnesota Fringe Festival, The Catskills New Works Festival, and the Dublin Fringe Festival and they return now for a limited engagement in The Brick Theater’s 10 year Retrospective. For full discloser I was asked, and did many years ago, create two very, very small; what Audrey Crabtree calls “Little Mask” for her character, which is not worn on her face. I am very please that they look totally a part of her character.
This is one of the best shows to come out of the NY Clown Theater Festival’s in Brooklyn. It is a very fun and unique show.
