Eat sushi at Akiko's on Mason - best sushi around, get a sumo roll... Then the theatre is 1 minute away on foot!

Theater is tiny and you wonder how all those actors will fit on stage but they do. Set design is fabulous. I cannot recommend this show too highly.

Description

From the national tour of “Cirque Ingenieux” to The Rio Hotel in Las Vegas to the Caribbean for all of the Major Cruise Liners Jason McPherson has thrilled audiences the world over. Mr. McPherson’s theatrical clowning casts a spell over the audience with his amazing contortions, hand balancing and comic timing.

Jason McPherson contorts his body into impossible forms, balances on top of impossible things, and manipulates objects in impossible ways. For 30-45 minutes, your audience will be laughed off the edge of it’s seat as a coat abruptly comes to life, a giant bug juggles it’s own face, and a live body appears to be disassembled and reassembled. Not to mention an action packed finale where our hero balances in a handstand on a teetering contraption high above the stage. It’s Harpo Marx encountering Steven Spielberg’s Poltergeist.

Jason has performed all over the world as the comic tailor in the premiere and encore tour of Cirque Ingenieux, as well as in numerous solo, ensemble, and review shows. Backstage West said, “he’s hilarious, his coat has a mind of it’s own.” He has had national television appearances on PBS, Crook and Chase, and Northwest afternoon which said, “He stole the show.”
