San Francisco Mime Troupe: The Last Election
In its 53rd season, the Tony Award-winning SF Mime Troupe presents
"For the Greater Good, or The Last Election"
Pity the poor 1 per cent. Abused in that sliver of press they don't own, condemned in the streets by a rabble who don't appreciate the benefits of being trickled down upon, and raked over the coals by the few politicians who aren't lined up to kiss their wealth and power. Talk about an oppressed minority! Finally, someone is stepping up to tell the story of these steaming sacks of benevolence as the San Francisco Mime Troupe presents For the Greater Good, or The Last Election, a tale that will warm the heart of every billionaire. Based on the classic 19th century melodrama The Poor of New York, the Troupe turns the story on its head, telling it from the point of view of the misunderstood Godzillionaires who have made this country what it is today: broke.
Michael Gene Sullivan directs Velina Brown, Ed Holmes, Lisa Hori-Garcia, Keiko Shimosato Carreiro, Victor Toman and Reggie D. White in this musical satire about "true" American values. Written by Michael Gene Sullivan, with additional dialogue by SFMT, music, lyrics, and musical direction by Pat Moran.
