Diana Wortham Theatre Presents: Mummenschanz, The Musicians of Silence
Since this pioneering theatre company’s 1972 emergence in Paris, its universe of whimsy and innovation has been delighting audiences everywhere. Imagine four actors with props such as oversized rulers, beanbags, pipe cleaners — and absolutely no sound or music. With shadow, light, and sculptural masks, the actors engage with the audience and each other without ever needing to make a sound. This is the hard-to-describe, wonderfully entertaining, trust-all-the-great-reviews performance made famous by MUMMENSCHANZ. Transcending cultural barriers to communicate timeless truths and insights on the human condition, MUMMENSCHANZ is a family-friendly must-see.
