PARIS – Celebration Barn Theater presents world-famous jugglers, The Flying Karamazov Brothers, tonight at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:30.
The Flying Karamazov Brothers have been “in the biz” since 1973, performing everywhere, from their early days on the streets of San Francisco (the actual streets, not the TV show) to more recent appearances on Broadway; they have trod the stages of the most prestigious theatres in the English-speaking World, from Singapore to Scotland; they’ve toured through every state in the Union; and they’ve traveled silver screens, both large and small.
They’ve also enjoyed six successful and critically acclaimed runs on Broadway: Juggling and Cheap Theatrics at the Ritz Theatre in 1983, Juggling and Cheap Theatrics reopening the Vivian Beaumont Theatre at Lincoln Center in 1986, The Comedy of Errors at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre in 1987, The Flying Karamazov Brothers Do The Impossible at the Helen Hayes Theatre in 1994 and Sharps, Flats & Accidentals at The New Victory Theater in 1996 and at Alice Tully Hall in 1998.
Though generally performing only as themselves, The Flying K’s have shared the stage with such people as Frank Sinatra, The Grateful Dead, Dolly Parton, The Who, Robin Williams, Joan Rivers, The Blues Brothers, Bobcat Goldthwait, Kenny Rogers and with Peter Schickele (P.D.Q. Bach) at Carnegie Hall.
The Flying Karamazov Brothers costarred, with Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and Danny De Vito, in the hit movie, “The Jewel of the Nile.”
The Brothers have appeared on an episode of “Seinfeld,” “Ellen” and the PBS shows “Bill Nye, the Science Guy” and “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood.”
Other television credits include: Public Television’s “Great Performances,” “Live from Lincoln Center,” several Smothers Brothers shows, numerous appearances on such shows as “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” NBC’s “Today Show,” ABC’s “Good Morning America,” CBS’s “This Morning,” “The Wayne Brady Show,” TNN’s “Crook & Chase” and “Regis and Kathie Lee.”
Celebration Barn Theater will present the Flying Karamazov’s nearly silent show, 4PLAY. Fun for all ages and all audiences, the show has recently toured China and Italy.
“These master jugglers are hilarious. Drop everything and go see them!,” said Gene Shalit of “The Today Show.”
