The Great Kaplan

Moisture Festival audiences have seen many wonderful performers over the ten years but this year we will present, not The Very Good Kaplan or The Merely Adequate Kaplan; we’ve searched the world and finally booked The Great Kaplan. Actually, it shouldn’t have been a difficult search, he could have been found on the prestigious French television show “Le Plus Grand Cabaret du Monde” or at Berlin’s Wintergarten Varieté. We could have found his name as the headline act on the marquee of theaters in over 20 different countries or we could have run into him at home in Columbus, Ohio. He’d be kind of hard to miss, he’s the one who might levitate a bowling ball or find one crashing down from the sky above. He might be juggling furniture or playing melodies on concert balloon or turkey baster (or maybe even on his great grandfather’s ukulele). David (The Great) Kaplan will join our line-up this year and we couldn’t be happier. We invite you to visit a wonderfully strange little world where we will see an act that is inspired by, among others, the work of Buster Keaton, Jacques Tati, Peter Sellers and Wile E. Coyote.
