About The Bad’uns

"It’s 90-minutes of intense bliss."

-Jacquelyn Claire, Stage Biz

"excels at making pointed commentary on society’s expectations of women....Clowns Ex Machina reminds us that despite how hard it can be to see the humor in a situation, it’s always worth the effort to make fun and laugh. Also, you don’t want to mess with these clowns." - Tami Shaloum, Round The World Stage

Clowns Ex Machina takes a darkly comic look at transgression, the corruption of dreams, and women in dangerously, dangerously bad moods. Inspired by legends of “the Bad-uns” – famous women criminals, outlaws and killers – the show examines notoriety, morality, defiance, and the social constraints of womanhood. Mischievous, startling, and sublimely ridiculous, this world premiere contains interwoven acts of song, dance, verbal wit, and incredible humor.
