Coney Performer Richard Eagan Is Back And Alive on the Inside.

After a long hiatus in performance art, Brooklyn artist and performer Richard Eagen takes us on a journey behind the scenes of his Coney Island life of the 1980's in a colorful presentation by The Coney Island History Project as part of their Coney Island Folklore Program, entitled "Alive on the Inside"

During his years there, Eagan continues to discover the fantastic beneath Coney's painted fun house exterior, finally realizing that escape proves eerily difficult once, like many before him, he "gets the sand in his shoes".
