Clown Bar is an immersive play in a genre best described as "clown noir."
Award-winning director Jaime Robledo (Stoneface, Watson) and producer Brandon Dobbins (Cirque-a-Palooza) are putting patrons in the middle of the sexy, dangerous, hilarious action of a bar filled with wise guys who happen to be funny.
Ken Jaworowsky of The New York Times calls Clown Bar's noir-parody script "unabashedly silly but also shrewd."
The hard-boiled hero, Happy Mahoney a former-clown-turned-cop comes to the Clown Bar looking for answers and vengeance. Somebody killed his brother, Timmy. But not everyone at the old honking grounds is happy to see Happy. And to find the killer, Happy will have to face his past without being pulled into clowndom's seedy underbelly of violence and vice.
There are eight million stories under the big top, but this play is one-of-a-kind. Clown Bar puts audiences right inside an underground clown bar, complete with a sad sack lounge singer cabaret and a sexy stripper-clown burlesque, for a night of tongue-in-grease-painted-cheek comedy.
Tickets are available now and include a prix fixe dinner with a choice of entrée. Clown Bar runs every Thursday night in January (the 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th) at 8:00. But come early. There's a 7:30 pre-show for ordering clown cocktails and otherwise bracing yourself for night of libations and laughter.
