The Montana Actors' Theatre proudly presents our spring guest artist, renowned mime Bill Bowers, performing his autobiographical one man show, It Goes Without Saying.
Bill opened It Goes Without Saying Off Broadway in 2006 at the Rattlestick Theater, and enjoyed a sold-out, extended run. From his days playing with Barbie dolls in his backyard in Montana to his training with world-renowned mime Marcel Marceau, Bill has observed the incredible power that silence can wield-- whether onstage, between family members, among neighbors, or when we are alone. Bill talks (yes, talks) with sensitivity, precision, and constant humor about a life lived to its fullest.
"Bowers tells of his silent Montana childhood, his eclectic jobs as a mime and the powerful and painful relationships along the way. When words fail him, Bowers adds the gestures that reveal his fluid grace, his mimetic mastery and his connection to something ethereal that lies beyond language. Meanwhile, you, as observor are pitched from hilarity to tragedy, guffawing one minute, punched in the gut the next. Bowers has taken a lifetime of silences and spun them into a performance that speaks volumes. When, at last, he lassoes that big Montana moon that has come to stand for both the dreams and dismays of a lifetime, I found I couldn’t even whisper “Bravo.”" --Carrie Seidman, Sarasota Harold Tribune
"Zestful and endearing... full of life." --The New York Times
