AVNER THE ECCENTRIC: Exceptions to Gravity

  • Date: November 7, 2021
  • Time: 03:00 PM - 04:30 PM
  • Location: Saco River Theatre, Bar Mills

Avner Eisenberg in Exceptions to Gravity is a reminder of the theatrical power that can reside in a single charismatic performer who touches the heart. A master of the art of physical comedy, Avner weaves a spell of poetic simplicity in a show of hilarious predicaments. Avner has appeared on- and off-Broadway with his hit show Exceptions to Gravity. He played the endearing Holy Man, The Jewel, in the Michael Douglas Film The Jewel of the Nile and performed as a ventriloquist on Broadway in Ghetto. His dummy was nominated for a Tony Award. Avner’s show defied the barriers of language and culture and has toured extensively in the US and abroad. “Masterful… Balletic… Avner will cure what ails you…if only we could bottle it!” – Alix Cohen “I laughed for two solid hours. The show only lasted an hour and a half.” — Joel Siegel, ABC-TV
