City Lore is adding another performance to its recent Coney Island-inspired programming. Artist and performer Richard Eagan will showcase his experiences from a side of Coney not often caught by the public eye. His resume includes show barker, weight guesser and game operator – all of which are set to make an appearance in this one man show, dubbed Alive on the Inside.
In Alive on the Inside, 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.
As previously mentioned, it’s part of City Lore’s larger exhibition, Boardwalk Renaissance: How the Arts Saved Coney Island.
You can catch it Thursday, January 28, 2016 at 7pm (doors at 6:45pm), at City Lore Gallery (56 East 1st Street). Tickets are $10.
