A Man Clams Up walks a tightrope of somehow being emotionally wrenching and down-right absurd at the same time. It’s a difficult feat and the actors do a wonderful job of harnessing the power of the ridiculous to ask important questions about masculinity and emotion. The story may not be subtle but for goodness sakes there’s a woman dressed up as a magical clam on stage and I enjoyed every minute of it.
