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.

I have seen a number of productions of "Meangerie" over the years plus the movie and television productions so I was curious to see what this production would bring. I found some of the choices more successful than others but will say outright that I generally find plays done in the round or in this case with the audience on two sides of the stage less involving as I generally cannot connect on an emotional level the same way that I do with actors on a proscenium stage. That being said I have a ticket to see the company's production of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" but rather doubt that I will see "Streetcar" as it is just too difficult to do successfully with this seating arrangement.
Lost hopes and memories of despair are all that remain for Tom who is trapped in a mundane warehouse job. Cajoled by his overbearing mother to find a suitor for his crippled sister, Tom brings a gentleman caller home for dinner. Inflated dreams are quickly dashed as the evening crumbles under the pressure of the moment.
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."
