I am ridiculously excited about Swiss Mummenschanz’s current NYC visit.
Mummenschanz is my alltime favorite Swiss Pantomime Troupe. In the wordless universe of Mummenschanz, the ordinary becomes extraordinary when common materials and everyday objects—such as wires, tubes, boxes, and even toilet paper—all spring to life as fantastical characters. Abstract shapes and forms also interact in surprising ways to reveal some timeless truths about human connections and relationships. Trust me, the result is a wonder-filled, visually stunning spectacle and family entertainment that sparks the imagination and transcends cultural barriers.
I saw this show a few years back – was great fun. Have a wonderful time!

Boy, I didn’t even know they were still active.
I think the fist time i have seen them, was in the late 70’s

My mothers took me to see this show at the Joyce Theater in the 80’s… Must have seen 4-5 performances. Thanks for the heads up SM, will def. be getting tickets.

This scares the hell out of me, for some reason.

I saw Cirque du Soleil – OvO recently, and the four armed tube man (1:33) was there as well. That was quite a show, and this looks jlike it will be too!

Wow! When I saw this I realized that I have seen them before but I must have been very very young. Very cool!
