Special Event To Feature The Vaudevillian Antics Of Tomáš Kubínek

The one and only Tomáš Kubínek is a comic genius, virtuoso vaudevillian and an all-around charmer who provides an utterly joyous experience that audiences will remember for a lifetime.

His latest creation, Tomáš Kubínek – Miracle Man – is a rip-roaring revival of stunts and skits that leaves audiences dazed, beaming and in love with life once again. He performs this production at The Clayton Center on Thursday, January 31, at 7:30 PM.

With appearances in more than 30 countries and a professional career spanning three decades, Kubínek has won the hearts of thousands in theaters, opera houses, television specials, on Broadway and at international festivals. Transcending categorization, his work leaves audiences clutching their sides with laughter. His internationally acclaimed solo performances play to packed theaters around the world. After a sold-out run on Broadway, The New York Times lauded his work as “absolutely expert!” and the Santa Fe Reporter boasts, “Masterfully played comedy…That secret mixture of DARING, TALENT, AND UTTER FOOLISHNESS…”

Tickets are $5, and children ages 8-12 are free. Please note that due to the focused nature of the program, this performance is not suitable for children under 8 years old.
