'Fool Moon' rising


"Fool Moon," the wordless hit Broadway comedy starring clowns Bill Irwin and David Shiner, opens a monthlong run at Washington's Kennedy Center on Saturday.

The Kennedy Center engagement comes after three Broadway runs, beginning in 1993 and culminating in a return engagement that ended last month. Irwin, an original member of the avant-garde troupe KRAKEN, as well as the Pickle Family Circus, is a 1984 MacArthur "genius" grant recipient. Shiner is a former star of Cirque du Soleil. In "Fool Moon," they are accompanied by the bluegrass string band the Red Clay Ramblers.

"Fool Moon," currently in previews, is performed in the Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theater. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays (except March 7 and March 28), with matinees at 2:30 p.m. today, Saturdays, Sundays and March 4 and March 25; through March 28. Tickets are $20-$59, except today's matinee, which is $20. Call 800-444-1324.
