Alive Theatre and the Long Beach Playhouse are primed to present some multitasking entertainment: live comedy with potentially curative powers found by confronting childhood demons. Directed by Jeremy Aluma, Four Clowns is a play that examines the human spirit through the lives of four clowns (sad, angry, mischievous and nervous). Described as a physical, musical and emotional journey, it involves the past laments of these funny folk in grease paint. Four Clowns is a comedy with the potential for some serious laughter, and for the brave few, it’s an opportunity to confront deeply ingrained childhood terrors.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: March 4. Continues through March 19, 2011
