David Magidson has spent the past 30 years donning white makeup, oversized shoes and a big red nose in order to entertain audiences as a professional clown. With his new show, Through the Eyes of a Clown, Magidson tries to uncover what drives a person to live in a reality as strange as, well ... his. Mixing tales of his time spent touring with the Ringling Brothers Circus with some goofy and inspired clown sketches, Through the Eyes of a Clown brings audience members into the curious world of clowning with a blend of humorous, whimsical and pointedly personal material.

Another enjoyable and well-executed production by Boxcar. All the actors' performances were strong. I was engrossed from start to finish.
The stage design complemented the intimacy of the play very well. The audience's chairs were arranged in small, two-row clusters that spilled onto the set, dissolving any boundary between audience and stage. You are instantly transformed into the proverbial fly on the wall watching the family's heated dynamics play out.
The show is 90 minutes and has no intermission, so make sure you arrive at the theater early enough to visit the restroom beforehand if needed!
Clawing hopes for the future and haunting sins of the past spar with one another at a Pollitt Family birthday party. Swarming around Brick, the beloved alcoholic son, are his conniving siblings and estranged wife, Maggie, all hoping to get a piece of Big Daddy’s fortune. Love, fortitude, and passion can set things right by evening’s end, but only if everyone agrees to believe their own lies.
Tennessee Williams won the Pulitzer Prize for his plays A Streetcar Named Desire (1948) and for Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955). He also earned two Drama Critics' Circle Awards for The Glass Menagerie (1945) and The Night of the Iguana (1961). His 1952 play The Rose Tattoo won the Tony for Best Play. David Mamet referred to his writing as "the greatest dramatic poetry in the American language."
