Alive on the Inside
Jan 28, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $10.00
In Alive on the Inside, Richard Eagan, artist and performer, tells the story of his experiences as a Coney Island show barker, weight guesser and game operator in this one man show. Eagan takes us on a colorful journey behind the scenes at Coney Island, drawing on his long experience there. The story follows the author from his childhood discovery of this most surreal playground through his return to Coney as an artist with a mission to save his beloved haunt from oblivion.
During his years there, Eagan continues to discover the fantastic beneath Coney Island’s hand painted fun house exterior, finally realizing that escape proves eerily difficult once, like many others before him, he “gets the sand in his shoes.”
Richard Eagan is familiar to many New Yorkers as the co-host of the Mermaid Parade and as the director of The Coney Island Hysterical Society.
Doors open at 6:45pm.
