Parallel Exit Performs At Usdan Summer Camp For The Arts
Parallel Exit, the three-time Drama Desk nominee for Unique Theatrical Experience, brought its unique brand of physical comedy to Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts. Today's performance featured Artistic Director Mark Lonergan with Joel Jeske and Brent McBeth, shown here with a few of the Usdan campers. They wowed the close to 1600-person crowd with an updated vaudeville style clowning which included jokes, magic and feats of wonder. The performance was presented as part of Usdan's 50th anniversary Festival series which has also included Flor de Toloache, an all female mariachi band; Mayhem Poets, and Sole Defined, among others.

Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts ( is the nation's preeminent not-for-profit day camp for the arts and has been named a "Best Of" camp by TimeOutNY/Kids, and by NY Metro Parents. Diverse and playfully rigorous from the start, Usdan brings world-class teachers and visiting artists - actors, directors, playwrights, painters, sculptors, musicians, composers, dancers, poets and novelists - to teach and collaborate with Usdan campers ages 4 to 18. Usdan ignites each child's artistic spirit in a fun, welcoming environment. We believe art making is brave making, friend making, freedom making and future making.
