Refreshing, Quirky, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you want to enjoy a performance with the entire family. Short performance, with some built-in audience interaction. Slap-stick humor.

Critic Reviews (4)

Theatre is Easy
December 9th, 2016
For a previous production

"With that single chalk, Curtis creates a world where anything can happen, and invites the audience onto an intimate, whimsical, and emotional journey…The narrative seems ordinary, yet the combined efforts of Curtis’ impeccable timing and director O’Connell’s wise use of space make the production wildly entertaining and incredibly moving. It’s a universally relatable story of love, loss, and mending one’s broken heart."

Theatre is Easy
February 20th, 2016
For a previous production

"Curtis delivers a wonderful clown show to be enjoyed on an adult level and, I imagine, also by a younger crowd...Where ‘Chalk’ is most successful is when Curtis uses the medium of clowning to investigate depression and loneliness…We learn that these chalk lines that have become a symbol of both the possible and also constriction can easily be erased."

Theater In The Now
February 17th, 2016
For a previous production

"An audience-pleaser but by no means is it perfect...There still seemed to be something missing. And that is a soundtrack...When Curtis incorporated music, the excitement was immediately amped up…'Chalk' starts off slow, overextending some early moments, when it does finally get going, 'Chalk' is endearing. As a performer, Curtis has a flair for physicality. He is a delight to watch…'Chalk' is a show that will warm your heart but it’s all a show that is still a work in progress."

Center on the Aisle
March 6th, 2016
For a previous production

"What is heartwarming about this lovable clown is that no matter what is thrown at him, he makes the best of his situation…Curtis’ skill at clowning is wonderfully apparent…His brilliant choreography of basic movements astound, due to both their complexity and simultaneous simplicity. The most impressive aspect of this show, however, is the relationship Curtis builds with the audience throughout the entire piece…Quite simply, 'Chalk' is clever, theatrical magic."
