  • Wing-Man and Reilly

    Gnap! Theater Projects and Salvage Vanguard presents this double feature of physical comedy, showcasing Caitlin Reilly (of Schave & Reilly) and NYC's Mark Gindick (who performs Wing-Man, his original and wordless winner of United Solo Theatre Festival's "Best One-Man Show"). These aren't the clowns who will eat you while you sleep; these are the clowns who will thrill you while you're awake. Recommended.
