Theatre Downtown presents the Alabama premier of the play Clown Bar Sept. 19-Oct. 5.
The Alabama premier of the noir comedy Clown Bar comes to Theatre Downtown Sept. 19-Oct. 5.
Written by Adam Szymkowicz and directed by Bates Redwine with compositions by Flannery Miles, Clown Bar immerses audiences in the underground clown world in the Clown Bar including mobsters, cabaret dancers, a crooning lounge lizard and other crazy characters.
In Clown Bar, a former clown turned detective returns to the scene of the crime to investigate the suspected murder of his brother. This silly but shrewd show pays homage to film noir and pulp novels.
Clown Bar tickets are $20. Friday, Sept. 20 patrons can go to Theatre Downtown on Facebook to get the password for a $10 ticket. Thursday, Sept. 26 is “pay what you can”
