This hilarious and surprisingly deep show tells the tale of 4 archetypal "clowns" - Sad, Mischievous, Angry, and Nervous - as they maneuver childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and death. Between heartbreaking and incredibly human (read= absurd, funny, awkward, erotic) moments, the characters improvise song, interact with the audience, and entice our inner devils. More incredible comedic timing & acrobatic movement than stereotypical white face & polka-dotted pants clowning, this piece is a must-see for lovers of spontaneity, devised-movement theatre, and laughing til you cry. Run time is a little long at over an hour & 1/2, so plan accordingly. Adult subject matter, not for children.... full review

Last but not least is Ellen Warkentine whose musical acc... full review

Four Clowns is an improv comedy show broken up into three sections: childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Each phase of life offers a variety of skits, including a boy molested by his teacher, another bullied by his brother, a teenager spurning his first love due to peer pressure, and an adult taken ill who must be operated on. Although it may not seem like cheery subject matter, I assure you it most certainly is ...
