NOW OR NEVER

Chicago improv group 500 Clown (pictured) returns to the Creative Alliance for its performance of 500 Clown Frankenstein starting tonight. The group turned Macbeth on its head in 2002, and now it's taking on Mary Shelley's classic tale, with a twist. Traditional theater is combined with circus arts and physical comedy in this production, which features Adrian Danzig, Paul Kalina and Molly Brennan as three clowns who decide to re-create Dr. Frankenstein's laboratory.

On Saturday, 500 Clown leads a workshop on physical theater for participants 12 and older.

500 Clown Frankenstein runs tonight through Sunday at the Creative Alliance at the Patterson, 3134 Eastern Ave. Showtime is 7:30 tonight, with tickets $12 for nonmembers and $8 for members and 8 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday, with tickets $15 for nonmembers and $12 for members. Tickets are available by calling 410-276-1651 or going to www.creativeal liance.org. Saturday's "Risk and Play" performance workshop with 500 Clown is 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. and costs $45, or $35 for members and students.
