He's clowned his way around the globe and now he's finishing a two-week stint at NH's Seacoast Repertory, Feb. 22. He's Avner Eisenberg, aka Avner the Eccentric, who uses props, juggling and magic as part of his mime act.
In Exceptions to Gravity, which opened Feb. 5, Eisenberg's character is a janitor caught off-guard by the audience. This leads him to such stunts as balancing a six foot stack of paper cups on his chin, and turning a red napkin into a baby that won't stay on his shoulder.
Said Seacoast Rep artistic director Roy Rogosin in a statement, "If Samuel Beckett wrote a play for the Marx Brothers, it would be an evening with Avner Eisenberg." Rogosin also noted that this was the first time in the company's ten-year history that they imported a production rather than mounting a home-grown show.
