“Excellent…campy and clever…A charming indulgence, grab your best clown nose and catch this production before it packs back up into its clown car and zooms away.”Flavorpill, Editor’s Pick

“…Clown Bar’s charm, however — and many of its laughs — come from the sheer absurdity of this unorthodox genre blending…so sit back, put on your red nose, and let yourself laugh.”Theater is Easy
