Review for San Francisco Mime Troupe, San Francisco, CA, USA
I have had the pleasure of watching the Mime Troupe's summer shows since about 1987. They are excellent! They really explore and satirize the currents events of the day in a very humorous way with very skilled and appealing actors, very good accompanying music, very good costumes, and amazingly flexible attractive sets. I have never seen a show of theirs that I didn't completely enjoy! I saw "Freedomland" this past summer and couldn't have imagined a more appropriate way to comment on the police brutality against black men in our country at this time than the way the SFMT portrayed it. The issue of the bureaucracy the police use and their willingness to manipulate facts were both effectively displayed. They perform not only in the San Francisco Bay Area but in nearby parts of California and sometimes elsewhere. Go to see them whenever you can!
