LA Theater Review


Two agile and inventive clowns with highly expressive faces, Jon Monastero and Stephen Simon (known collectively as Ten West) enliven a droll fantasy about the journey from life to death. Directed with grace by Bryan Coffee, their sly comedy is as much Cirque du Soleil as it is Chaplin-esque, with a little commedia dell'arte thrown in. They pull the entire audience onstage for a group photo, they pratfall, they execute stylized choreography to witty musical choices, and yet the show is over too soon. Ineffable means indescribable—suggesting their brand of cleverness should be seen firsthand.

Theatre of NOTE at the Lounge Theatre, 6201 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood. Theatre of NOTE, 1517 N. Cahuenga Blvd., Hollywood. Sat., June 11, 8 p.m. (Lounge) Fri., June 17, 8 p.m.; Sat., June 18, 10 p.m.; Fri., June 24, 8 p.m.; Sat., June 25, 10 p.m.
