Inspired by (not based on) Bertolt Brecht's Man is Man, 500 Clown and the Elephant Deal is an original theater production for adults with music, co-created with composer and lyricist John Fournier, who also collaborated on 500 Clown Christmas. A rocking three-piece band, an alluring Mistress of Ceremonies, and a daring stage crew have everything they need for a night of theatre... except for the story, which has gone MIA. The players find themselves on a collision course with this fierce runaway tale, which is riddled with spontaneous characters and dangerous stunts, utilizing a steel truss as cabaret stage and obstacle course (outfitted with custom-designed weight-bearing pulleys and lots of rope). Run time will be approximately 90 minutes with one intermission. Post-show discussions will follow all previews and Wednesday and Thursday performances (free with paid ticket).
