Charles Atlas Sheppard did a preview of this clown-based show in our mammoth May 26 Best of Food & Drink issue. As Charles noted, the lead performer, Mooky Cornish, has worked in the past with Cirque du Soleil, and studied the concept of clown as it exists in a number of different cultures.
Glories of Gloria Revue co-stars Cal McCrystal, who has has an extensive background in clown and other types of physical comedy. The performance involves a twist on an old trope, where instead of a person running away from a humdrum life to join the circus, a circus artist abandons the big top to try to make it big in a smallish Saskatchewan city.
Glories of Gloria Revue will be held at the Artesian tonight and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15, with children 12 and under admitted for $7.
