Mark Hayward (left) and Jonathan Burns (right) prepare to break a world record…any world record!
Pay attention, kids: Mark Hayward and Jonathan Burns are living proof that you CAN spend a good deal of your youth playing with toys and making farting noises with your armpits — and still grow up to be a success. If it worked for them, it can work for you! Yo-yo champ Hayward and celebrated contortionist Burns have traveled the world demonstrating their skills. Now, they’ve joined forces in order to break a world record at every performance of “Stunt Lab” — when they’re not busy using everyday objects and their own ingenuity to create dangerous, amazing and wild experiments. “Stunt Lab” is part of Canal Park Playhouse’s Classic Brunch Matinee series. At the theater’s Waffle Iron Café you can chow down on waffles, frittatas, French toast, salads and sliders before or after the show.
Hayward and Burns perform their crazy stunts every Sat. and Sun, 1pm and 4pm, through April 1. At Canal Park Playhouse (508 Canal St., btw. Greenwich & West Sts.). For tickets ($20), call 866-811-4111 or visit canalparkplayhouse.com. Also visit markandjonathan.com.
