A side-splitting, all-American clown show. Drone strikes, reservations, immigration, binge-drinking and baseball; in collaboration with sculptural artists Bridget Cookson and Skully Gustafson.

"10 Best Wisconsin Plays of 2013"
MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL
"Americlown is kind of mind-blowing. A satire on American culture in clown form. It's funny. It's beautiful. It's ugly. It's dichotomous. And it's easily one of the most sensational nights of theatre in Milwaukee so far this season."
Russ Bickerstaff, SHEPHERD EXPRESS
"Americans don't usually see clowns like these, who provoke laughter that also unsettles and disturbs"
Mike Fischer, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL
"You don't have to like clowns or America to like Americlown: it paints a sometimes cutting, often hilarious landscape of what's going on just under the surface of our cheery commercial culture."
Jeff Grygny, MILWAUKEE THEATER EXAMINER
