Poofy du Vey in "Burden of Poof"
Schkapf is proud to present "Burden of Poof", the award-winning solo, adult clown show from New York's Courtney Cunningham. Born in the underground theatres of the NYC downtown variety scene, "Burden of Poof" made its world premiere at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, has since been presented in theatres and festivals throughout the US and Canada, and is now making its Los Angeles debut!
"Burden of Poof" is the story of Poofy du Vey: a bundle of nerves with big dreams and
even bigger fears. Poofy's got a lot to say if she could only remember what that was.
As Willa Rohrer of the Philadelphia Weekly put it, "I guess we all have a little bit of
Poofy inside of us"
But why should you see it? Because it's an experience. And you might fall in love. And
it's not the The Kardashians. See you at the show!
