500 Clown infuses the holiday season with jaw-dropping hilarity, off the hook festivity, and twisted tales of horror and delights. 500 Clown is the award-winning company that wields circus arts, improvisation, and action-based performance to produce theatre that catapults the performers into extreme physical and emotional risk. Their work shifts the audience from passive to active observers and creates a super-charged environment that celebrates the unpredictable power of the moment.
In 500 Clown Frankenstein, three clowns embark on a madcap journey to construct Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory. Challenging and elaborate period costumes, poor lighting, difficult language, and an ornery table prevent them from properly telling Mary Shelley's classic tale. Comic mayhem takes a sharp turn to a devastating climax when one clown is forced to play the role of the creature and suffer abuse and abandonment. The result is the creation of unexpected horror.
