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.

The actors of the Boxcar Playhouse deconstructed their performance space to terrific effect. The audience was compelled to move around to accommodate their movement, finding itself interestingly implicated in the drama "on stage." The minimalist sets and costumes were evocative and, frankly, charming. The play itself was good--I especially appreciated the interpolated quotations from Brecht's diary--though the bathetic finale felt a little over the top. All in all, wonderful! I will recommend it to friends.
"Don't you feel the pressure to change? Your neighbor has become one. And so has your wife. With their beautiful horns, rough skin, and cacophonous trumpeting--don't you think they are just a little bit better than you?"
Physical transformations, ideological conformity, and that nagging feeling you might never ever fit in come together in this sometimes hard-hitting, but always playful work of art.
