WHAT: “If you’d like or need to be reminded of the pure and simple joy of life, PINOT & AUGUSTINE will do the trick. Their show is pure entertainment, clean and fresh fun…The Most Adorable Show in the World!” – DC Metro Theater Arts
A sure-fire 45-minute bilingual and crowd-pleaser, PINOT & AUGUSTINE is a classic, family-friendly clown duo inspired by the golden age of Circus. Pinot, played by Mark Jaster, is the authoritarian clown in fancy clothes and a white cone hat. Augustine, played by Sabrina Mandell, is the appealing red-nosed bumbler who punctures his pomposity. The show bubbles over with physical comedy, virtuosity, and musical surprises from the sublime to the ridiculous: from lyrical melodies on a musical saw to pratfalls and a whoopee cushion.
PINOT & AUGUSTINE have appeared worldwide and are a hit with audiences of every age. Sabrina Mandell, the founder of Happenstance Theater, was nominated for a Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Actress in 2017. The Washington Post called Mark Jaster a “clown extraordinaire and one of the most graceful performers you will ever see on a stage.” This performance is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council and is presented in partnership with Carpe Diem Arts.
