Comic actor Avner Eisenberg, also known as Avner the Eccentric, brings his vaudeville-style physical comedy to Actors Theatre of Louisville for an exclusive engagement of his show, Exceptions to Gravity, May 11-June 4. Eisenberg has been seen on Broadway in Lincoln Center Theater's The Comedy of Errors (1987), Ghetto (1989) and Exceptions to Gravity (1997).
The comic show has "Avner" battling inanimate objects and creating forms: Balancing ladders on his chin, eating a stack of napkins, becoming a human fountain, dancing with a stack of paper cups. The wordless presentation is accompanied by kazoo (played by Avner).
Official opening is May 12. Tickets are $16-$30. For information, call (502) 584-1205 or try the web site at www.actorstheatre.org.
