4 Clowns blew me away the first time around and it did not disappoint a second time. 4 Clowns Romeo and Juliet is a laugh riot, full of tender moments, crass clowns and outstanding commitment. Jeremy Aluma and his team have a solid gift to share with everyone. ... full review

Five Stars all around! I thoroughly enjoyed this production from Four Clowns. To be able to partake in a performance is such a delight; and here there is so much encouragement from these brave, hysterical, & outrageous clowns to join right in. Go and see this show. You walk out still laughing from their delightful interpretation of our beloved Romeo + Juliet. ... full review

TURNER MUNCH uncertified reviewer June 17, 2011
4 Clowns Romeo and Juliet has all the fun, energy, emotion and impact of the last years fringe favorite only this time with Shakespeare to back them up. You'll laugh and cry and be completely grossed out at times but the emotional journey the clowns and audience go through together is both exhausting and satisfying. I recommend to anyone and everyone. Director Jeremy Aluma has rocked the fringe house once again with his 4 Clowns.... full review

I laughed so hard for so long, I had to stop laughing. It hurt! Much like the raw, adolescent anger of the fatefully doomed characters Romeo + Juliet and the violence of their stupid, dueling families just plain hurts. Irreverent and not for prudish audiences, 4 Clowns brings their patented brand of fast-paced, comedic physical-theatre to poke fun at the traditional tale, weaving a world that is one part boy band, one part reality tv, a pinch tragedy and 100% fun. This troupe is bringing something entirely unique and totally enjoyable to the LA scene, do not miss them before they head out for tour!... full review

I saw the preview of 4 Clowns: Romeo & Juliet on Saturday, and I have to say, I can't think of a better way I could've spend my Saturday night. Go see this show. Seriously. The cast is outrageously gifted and thrives under excellent direction and a hilarious script. The actors have a great command of physical comedy, switching from one character to the next with ease. This is the type of theatre we NEED here. Go see it!... full review
SAMUEL HUNTER uncertified reviewer June 16, 2011
Four Clowns: Romeo and Juliet is a very fun ride. The actors are so clearly filled with joy to be performing this show that's it's very difficult to avoid coming with them. When these actors are on fire, they are truly on fire and the jokes don't stop rolling. Because we all know the story of Romeo and Juliet, this show is really about the comedy in between the plot points, and the best humor in the show is the stuff that comes out of the story and relationships we already know. Unfortunately, there are many moments that feel completely unrelated to the situations and these, for me, tended to fall flat. I suppose that is part of the package with a structured improv - one runs the risk of lacking specificity in some moments - but these mom... full review

The Four Clowns had me crying with laughter. I saw their previous production and could not miss this one. I looking forward to seeing this show for a long time and they did not disappoint. I am so impressed by the work this team does. They have comedic timing down to a science. These clowns took one of the most tragic, well known love stories, and made it witty, hilarious, and even threw in a few surprises along the road. Fantastic work to everyone involved. Oh and I have to add the pianist is brilliant! Absolutely go! But be prepared to blush, defiantly PG13 if not R at times so leave the kids at home.... full review
