Have you ever smashed yourself in the face with a yo-yo in front of 800 of your peers? Thrown flaming torches into a crowd? Embarrassed yourself on national television? Stunt Lab's yo-yo champion Mark Hayward has done all of these things (and more). Now he goes solo, hilariously recreating some of his worst gigs for your entertainment. But this time he fixes the disasters. Maybe.
Part of Canal Park Playhouse’s Matinee/Brunch series, brunch at the theater’s Waffle Iron Café is available before and after the show. The brunch menu includes hot-off-the-waffle-iron spinach, mushroom, and smoked chicken sausage frittatas; French toast; and Traditional Belgian Waffles with pure Vermont maple syrup and butter, as well as the house specialty The Playhouse Pink Waffle (a pink waffle with strawberries and whipped cream) and the chocoholic fantasy the Decadent Dark Chocolate Waffle. Entree salads and waffle-branded sliders are also available.
Mark Hayward (creator/performer) has been a variety arts performer since 1990. He is a World Yo-yo Champion, a member of a World Champion Juggling Team, and a Spintop Champion. His mom is proud. Mark has traveled the world with a yo-yo on his finger (well, mostly in his pocket), and has made appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, America's Got Talent, and the NBC Nightly News (without committing a crime). Someday Mark hopes to perform for both the President and the Queen. Not being a convicted criminal should help with that.
