It was a good show, good feedback for all the clowns, I myself was overwhelmed with some things that were said to me. It was very nice to perform in a real theater, the New England Youth Theater on Flat St. in Brattleboro.
I had a really amusing experience at the get together at the Whetstone Bar afterward. Before the show, I was really late and in a panic to get to the theater, and I had forgotten my prop cactus at home. So I went to the Coop, where cacti are sometimes on sale, to see if they would lend me one for the show. A gentleman named Tony, who had really enjoyed the show, confessed at the Whetstone to having seen me in my pajamas and pilot’s helmet liner (most of my clown Barclay’s costume) at the Coop, and thinking to himself “Goddamn Vermonters are too damn lazy to change out of their pajamas!”
One of those great moments to be a clown.
