"You walk away with an appreciation of the cathartic effect that the production has on both the characters and on yourself."
~ James Scarborough, HUFFINGTON POST
"Aluma may be saying that human pain is at once particular and universal; what's certain is that his cast is gifted, including musical director Ellen Warkentine, as the one woman orchestra in the wings." Go!
LA WEEKLY and BACKSTAGE
"Each clown is an honest, albeit exaggerated, version of humanity, expertly crafted and directed by Jeremy Aluma and his quartet of brilliant clowns".
~ Ashley Steed,
LA THEATRE REVIEW
"The playful, troublemaking 4 Clowns offer a night out you won’t soon forget. The 4 Clowns are thrillingly unique, and you could possibly leave asking,"Did that really just happen?”.
~Stephanie Forshee, CAMPUS CIRCLE
"The cast are all versatile, distinctive and eye catching". ~ Trish Ostroski,
"Aluma’s 4 Clowns had a powerhouse design team behind them".
~ Marlon Deleon

LA THEATRE REVIEW
"Aluma lets them do their stuff: acrobatic sometimes, intellectual always (and always funny.)"
~ John Farrell,
4 Clowns, is a physical, musical and emotional journey into what it means to be a human being. Follow four clowns who represent the four clown archetypes; the sad clown, the mischievous clown, the angry clown and the nervous clown as they get together to lament and reminisce about their past. As the old adage goes, ‘laughter is the best medicine’ but, laughter comes most earnestly when reflecting on past sorrows. As the clowns tell their tales of woe and elation from childhood to adulthood we discover that really they are all the same, and so are we.
“Perhaps I know best why it is man alone who laughs; he alone suffers so deeply that he had to invent laughter”. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
