Review for San Francisco Mime Troupe, San Francisco, CA, USA
The Mime Troupe is world-class, but maintains vigorous grass-roots connections to "the people," wherever they travel - from Dolores Park, to Santa Rosa, to Iowa City and faaaarrr beyond, around the world. A "must know" for anyone interested in the history of political theatre, they are also a "must see" for all ages, ethnicities, etc. We look forward to their new show each summer; it's the best way to celebrate the 4th of July weekend in SF ! - or - will be sure to see the show later, "on the road." Reasons to see: Best values (ethics, politics, collaboration); Best performances and directing (passionate, talented, energized); Best writing about today's issues (clever, meaningful, funny but packs a punch); Most clever sets, costumes, props; Most engaging LIVE music; FREE (be sure to make donation) and FUN - All while learning what's currently important to be thinking and talking about ! The Mime Troupers are a Bay Area and USA TREASURE.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I always use them as examples in my teaching and encourage everyone I know to see their shows. Audiences are thoroughly entertained, but also really empowered to discuss important current US / world issues after seeing their shows.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Give them enough money to keep doing what they do so well, without having to worry about the costs, and with artists also being paid proper living wages !
