About this show

500 Clown Frankenstein brings a clown's-eye view to the themes of creation and abandonment. Three clowns embark on a madcap journey to construct Dr. Frankenstein's lab. Stymied by elaborate and exaggerated period costumes, the clowns are propelled into acrobatic feats in an extended battle with an unruly table. 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.
