CLOWNZILLA: A LOVE STORY
As a companion piece to the world premiere of CLOWNZILLA: ILLEGAL ALIENS, Monkey Wrench Collective is presenting a revival of 2007's CLOWNZILLA: A LOVE STORY.
Two outcast clowns -- a boy and a girl -- struggle to find their way in the cruel world of hip, high-status red-nose performers. Brought to life in a black and white world inspired by Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, our plucky heroes have a message for these modern times: laugh until your sides ache but never underestimate the triumphant spirit of total dorks.
Conceived and directed by Clownzilla founder Eli Simon, the production stars Will Cranmer, Alexa Teal Green, RJ Romero, Adrienne Mueller and Joel Shura, plus a plethora of guest clowns.
"CLOWNZILLA: A LOVE STORY is staged like a silent movie, juggling darkness, light and fun with clownish antics... Don't let the modest means of this oddly delightful assault on clown social dynamics fool you. Beneath its cracked sensibility bubbles elemental energy that reaches past commedia dell'arte to Aristophanes... CLOWNZILLA walks a tightrope between absurdist angst and daft precocity... its freewheeling festivities offer a slapstick valentine to geeks everywhere."
--David C. Nichols
