Interview with Slava Polunin – Russian Clown

In 1984 I was the photographer in residence for International Clown Theatre Festival in Philadelphia. At the time Slava Polunin had come to the festival from Leningrad and was performing with his clown company Litsedei. I documented them and here are a few photographs from that show. Now he has his own show and it is on Broadway!  SLAVA'S SNOW SHOW What a success it has been too! A Must See Show! The Slava Snow Show is currently on Broadway!

Vaudevisuals Interview with A.J.Silver

"A Cowboy from the Bronx" I have been a big fan of A.J.Silver for many years. I ask him for an interview a few years ago and his schedule didn't permit it then. This week we got a chance to find out about his 'new' solo show. Listen in and find out about the origin of the show and come see it for sure! Angelo is a 'gifted' performer with many great skills and a wonderful stage persona that is truly him. This show will be a treat for all that attend. I guarantee you!  DIXON PLACE - MAY Continue reading...

Vaudevisuals interview with Shannon Plumb – Filmmaker/Actress

Shannon Plumb makes funny movies. Usually with her in the leading role. You call them 'personal art films'. They are in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art as well as in Private Collections. Here is the interview I did with her in Prospect Park. (Planes flying over, baseball practice and wind competing with my sound!) Her work is very 'low-fi' so I decided to shot the interview in that style.  I attended her screening at MOMA's New Directors/New Films series and was very moved by her Continue reading...

I was fortunate to meet him before he passed away. He was very kind with his words and manner. ~The Following Text is From Wikipedia~ Edward Albee was born in 1928. He was placed for adoption two weeks later and taken to Larchmont in Westchester County, New York, where he grew Continue reading...
