Four Clowns Presents That Beautiful Laugh at The Long Beach Playhouse
2013-02-06 · By Editor
Award-winning, nationally-touring company Four Clowns presents That Beautiful Laugh, conceived by Orlando Pabotoy and directed by Turner Munch as part of the 2nd annual Long Beach Playhouse collaborative this March. The ensemble delivers an audience-interactive performance as hilarious and touching as only Four Clowns can do.
Departing from his home, the moon, a wise old man travels with his weathered precious trunk to a world that has forgotten how to laugh. Hoping to extinguish cynicism and judgement and replace it with joy and curiosity, he brings an arsenal of clowns, ignorant to the rules of the world. Together, these clowns must embark on a quest to find that beautiful laugh. Searching through each other and their audience the clowns will discover and examine every avenue of laughter; love, joy, mischief, pain, fear, sadness and more, hoping to find the laugh that they have all been waiting for…That Beautiful Laugh.
