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.

BOXCAR has a hit and brings the classic EQUUS full force casting a brilliant young actor in the lead - Bobby Thornton plays the Alan -- and he brings amazing child like madness to the role that the Harry Potter kid could never do while he did the stint in NY last winter.
This is a breathtaking production of this play ,,Not to be missed, and be sure to take action for tickets at the great price this web site offers..
Get seats while they last ,, this is the best it gets in the SF Bay Area.
my Facebook update: THE BOXCAR PLAYERS has a hit in SF - Their production of EQUUS features powerhouse young actor Bobby Conte Thornton as the boy Alan Strang. Thornton's emotional range is brilliant, his pure attack of Shaffer's play that brings his classic to a level that the Harry Potter boy could not do. I will share links to this play later this week. It wowed me this weekend.
Quotes & Highlights
- Equus won the 1975 Tony Award for Best Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and was made into a film in 1977.
Written by Peter Shaffer
Directed by Erin Gilley
Based on actual events, this intense psychological thriller uses striking expressionistic storytelling techniques to explore the reasons why a 17-year-old boy blinded six stable horses. Journey through an adolescent's dangerous obsession told through the eyes of his brilliant child psychiatrist. Delve into the darkest recesses of human existence - blind worship, endless desire and desperate violence.
Peter Shaffer's modern classic is not intended for all audiences. Equus contains strong language, nudity and simulated violence and makes use of fog and actual hay.
