Fasten your seatbelts for another wild yet thought-provoking ride with the world-renowned San Francisco Mime Troupe (SFMT). Experts at finding the absurdity in contemporary culture, the SFMT has been on the progressive frontlines since the heyday of the civil rights movement in the early 1960s. Prepare for laughter, tragedy, snappy dialogue and vivid live music.

About American Dreams: A New Musical

The American Dream. It used to mean a job, a house, a car, a spouse, 2.5 kids and a .4 dog. But what does it mean now? For some it is a good tide raising all boats, for others it is a tsunami that destroys everything.
For some it is unity, for others it is dissolution. A handshake or a gun. One citizen’s dream has become another’s nightmare and those who fan the flames of the differences will gladly profit while democracy burns.
