An amazingly creative, entertaining, and whimsical experience! Incredible example of ensemble. Easily one of the best shows in Fringe!... full review

JOE DESOTO uncertified reviewer June 27, 2019
You'd be hard-pressed to find this kind of stupidity anywhere else. And I mean that in the best way. Mil Grus is one part performance art, two parts improv comedy, and five parts avant-garde nonesense. And I loved every single one of those parts! The entire bouffon ensemble are as irresistibly funny as they are repulsive. They have the audience in the palm of their hand the whole time. Like a fickle feline, they push us away and pull us back in on a whim. A well devised show, excellently performed, and exquisitely weird. The Fringe community will be talking about this one for a long time.... full review
JOHN PATRICK DALY certified reviewer June 25, 2019
I have never been more present with an audience experiencing a thing than I was in this show. Disturbing, shocking, hilarious, provocative, and so, so, so weird, I loved every moment of this show and never want to watch it again. Which is good, because each show is bound to be insanely different. ... full review

I absolutely LOVED IT. It was revolutionary, grotesque, beautiful, and mostly... hilarious. These french medieval Buffon clowns are NOTHING the fringe has ever seen before, this coming from an LA native who's seen just about everything. I'm always looking for something completely fresh. I took my non-theatre going boyfriend, a regular Joe who works a 9-5 to Mil Grus ( I know, an ambitious beginning...) and he though it was simply fantastic. We laughed our asses off. It was gorgeous and also so deeply rooted in burtal, experimental, idiotic art. More please! The people worked So SO hard, and it really really payed off. I saw all the work they put into it and 100% translated. As i said, WE NEED MORE OF THIS PLEASE! ... full review
MARILYN MINEO certified reviewer June 13, 2019
A delight for the senses! From the moment the lights go down we are whisked away to this playground where these colorful characters tantalize us to play along. Dean Evans masterfully directs this wildly talented troupe. Absurd, abstract, with the right amount of hysteria and brightness. Exciting to see Buffon in LA. A show not to be missed!... full review
KELLEY PIERRE certified reviewer June 15, 2019
If you know what bouffon is- You'll want to see this. If you don't know what bouffon is- You. Will. Want to See. This. "Mil Grus" is the art of mimicry, it's basic human needs from inhuman creatures. They're mocking us- Wait... no? They just need to know that we're ok. It's a dance. It's desperately important nonsense. ... full review
MONA HANOUNI certified reviewer June 15, 2019
Strange, yet strangely lovable!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! This motley crew of mischievous miscreants magically merge and meld onstage and provoke, surprise, and connect with the audience for an uproariously entertaining immersive experience. ... full review
JAKE KORNELY certified reviewer June 17, 2019
Five monsters in matching outfits (that are never quite as scary as they might originally appear) do everything they can to get the audience to love them. It was absurd and silly, and you could tell that the performers weren't sure of what was going to happen next. The show was spontaneous and weird and very, very funny.... full review
