500 Clown Trapped Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Recommended Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Tuesdays and Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through May 21 2011

The insane, inspired, risk-loving, intensely physical 500 Clown troupe has given itself a kid-friendly makeover. The essentials are still there: three performers (Adrian Danzig, Tim Heck, and Leah Urzendowski) confront an overwhelming physical obstacle (a huge, cage-like device that swallows things, including them) and employ a brilliant array of Keatonesque solutions to overcome their problem. This time, however, there's none of the more risque comedy of previous shows. The result is both wholesome and hilarious. --Jack Helbig

Price: $10-$17
