Cody Clark.

CODY CLARK: A Different Way of Thinking, from magician Cody Clark of Louisville, was one of the most talked-about productions at the 2015 Cincinnati Fringe Festival. Cody was revered by local critics as “a talented and fearless young performer” with “formidable sleight of hand.”(Joshua Steele, Cincinnati CityBeat).

Cody Clark has a different way of thinking, a different way of seeing the world. He discovered his love for magic at age 11, 9 years and 9 months after his parents discovered he had autism. Through stage magic and story, sleight of hand and journey of mind, Cody will show you the world through his eyes. Maybe you’ll find that his way of thinking isn’t all too different from yours.

Cody’s exciting, unique brand of magic is based on over 10 years of experience as a magician, along with his experience from studying Marketing and Theatre Arts at the University of Louisville.  He has presented his one-man show at the Slant Culture Theatre Festival in Louisville and at Wizardz Magic Theatre in Newport, KY. He also is a regular performer on the monthly magic show circuit, which includes Derby City Magic in Louisville, Indy Magic Monthly in Indianapolis and Magic Chicago.

CFF_Hitchhikers May Be InmatesHITCHHIKERS MAY BE INMATES, from Kevin Crowley (2014 Critics’ Pick Winner for Sarge) also received high praise from audiences and critics alike. Actors Michael Bath and Kevin Crowley, commended as some of Cincinnati’s “most engrossing and captivating performers” (Kirk Sheppard, Cincinnati CityBeat), return with “the best performances of the [2015 Cincinnati Fringe] festival” (Rob Bucher, Behind the Curtain Cincinnati).

Dave is new to AA and struggling mightily. His sponsor, JD, has his own tenuous grasp on sobriety and is exactly what Dave doesn’t need. Their evening spent flirting with disaster is funny and cautionary.

Kevin Crowley returns for this Fringe Encore of his 2015 production at the Festival, following his 2014 Fringe hit, “Sarge.” Crowley also acts, alongside Michael Bath, directed by Buz Davis co-members of the lauded local theater company The Clifton Players. Crowley, Bath and Davis have worked together on several of Clifton Players hit shows, Irish Curse, disgruntled employees, and A Behanding in Spokane.

Fringe Producer Chris Wesselman is elated to return to Clifton Performance Theatre (CPT) for another Encore presentation, stating, “The intimacy of CPT lends itself so wonderfully to Fringe productions. The excitement and energy pulsing from the stage immediately in front of you makes for a wonderful theatrical experience and we’re thrilled to have CPT hosting another Fringe Encore event.”

Both productions will run for three nights, March 31, April 1 and 2, with Cody Clark at 7:30pm and Hitchhikers… at 8:45pm.
