“A strange, comforting, and magical show that left me tremendously moved and deliriously hopeful.”

I first met Siobhan at a performance in Kensington, Brooklyn. The monthly series was called “Tiny Dangerous Fun” and it was hosted by John Leo and Andy Sapora. Two very funny dudes! Siobhan made an impression on me from her wonderful personality and vulnerbility with the audience. If you are up for a great and unique theater experience I suggest you go this charming young woman in the bathtub!

Here are the remaining dates

Tickets can be had here!

Here is a link to Julie’s wonderful book “Life in a Clown House“.

Life in a Clown House

“Written with an improviser’s freedom, a clown’s humility and a poet’s potency, Life in a Clown House is a deeply life-affirming invitation to move and to be moved. In “The Manual” Julie outlines a series of valuable exercises to prime performers for play, discovery and transformation. In “The Memoir” she reminds us to all to embrace the game, especially as the rules change.”
