Springfield College presents Avner the Eccentric in Exceptions to Gravity

WHAT: Springfield College presents Avner the Eccentric in Exceptions to Gravity
WHEN: Friday, September 14, 7:30 pm
WHERE: Appleton Auditorium, Fuller Arts Center, 243 Hickory St, Springfield MA

I laughed for two solid hours. The show only lasted an hour and a half.
—Joel Siegel,  ABC-TV

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.
—Patriot Ledger

Our scheduled presentation of Avner last March was cancelled due to a snow storm, so he’s back to perform for us this fall by meteorological demand!

A master of the art of physical comedy, Avner the Eccentric weaves a spell of poetic simplicity in a show of hilarious predicaments. Avner has appeared on and off Broadway, and he played the endearing Holy Man, The Jewel, in the Michael Douglas film, The Jewel of the Nile. Avner’s show defies the barriers of language and culture and has toured extensively in the US and abroad.

“If laughter really is the best medicine, Avner Eisenberg could easily cure everything that ails you. He’s a clown in the truest sense of the word...You’ve got to see it to believe it can be this much fun.” — Boston Metro

“Here is what Avner the Eccentric does best: he reduces his audience to laughter and giggles and applause.”   
—New York Times
