Regard of Flight, The

Bill Irwin's zany antics in this show embody a combination of craft and imagination that prompted film director Robert Altman to exclaim, "I think he's remarkable, on the same level of genius with Chaplin and Keaton." Clown, mime, dancer and satirist, Bill Irwin takes a grab bag of theatrical conventions and turns them into a madcap amalgam of gags, dance routines and sketches. Irwin's hapless character is an "Everyman" in a baggy suit, whose only wish is to entertain. Bill Irwin's genius was recognized with a 1999 Tony Award for "Special Achievement" (for his work "Fool Moon").
