It was being presented at the cellar space on St. Marks Place called UNDER ST. MARKS. Christopher Lueck and Amanda Pekoe began the show on a shoe-string budget.
The sign was attached to the wrought iron gate at the top of the stairs that led to the basement performing space.
Christopher and Amanda worked constantly getting new talent to perform in the revue.
Every week it was a new group of performers. On several nights they would have performers that weren’t clowns but comedic and funny. The Pajama Men performed in the review and now have a run at St. Ann’s Warehouse.
Some of the regulars at the revue are pictured below.
On Friday September 3rd The NY Clown Theatre Festival got off to a great start with the Clown Parade. Beginning in Union Square and moving to The Brick Theatre in Williamsburg where the festival is presented. More than 100 clowns and admirers moved through the streets of NY and into the L train station for their fun trip to Brooklyn. I have posted a good selection of photographs from that adventure.
