About the show

Broken Box Mime Theater (BKBX) presents a brand-new set of original short plays told solely through movement, no props, sets, costumes, or words. More…

Set to a fresh soundtrack and dynamic lighting design, the mime re-definers of BKBX journey from film noir to political protest, and everywhere in between. 'See Reverse' is comprised of ten provocative yet accessible short plays strung together by a common theme and suspended disbelief.

"I can’t say that I am the biggest mime enthusiast in the world...and I found it very entertaining. My attention was consistently drawn to the inventiveness of the vignettes and the precision with which they were executed. The production has a sense of being very well rehearsed and precise while ...
