By - posted 8/16/2012 No Comment

The Tony Award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe continues its 53rd season with more free, lively satire performances in park settings around the Bay Area.

The 2012 theme, “For the Greater Good, or The Last Election,” turns the 19th century melodrama “The Poor of New York” on its head and tells it from the point of view of the fat cats who have bankrupt this country.

SF Mime Troupe | For the Greater Good of The Last Election
Sunday, August 19, 2012 (2pm), Music at 1:30pm
Yerba Buena Gardens (Mission St. & 3rd St.), SoMa

Founded in 1959, the San Francisco Mime Troupe creates and produces socially relevant theater; despite the name “mime,” their work is not silent, but live musical comedy and political satire.
