Entertaining, Funny, Resonant, Original, Refreshing

See it if You enjoy "slice of life" storytelling, anecdotes about theater performers, amusing and often touching observations about people.

Don't see it if You don't like solo, "memoir" type shows, hate mimes, want a lot of production razzle-dazzle.

Great writing, Thought-provoking, Quirky, Funny, Smart

See it if you appreciate great stories and people who tell them. If you want to see a mime talking about things too amazing to be fictious.

Don't see it if a smart, funny, self-proclaimed "gay mime from Montana" doesn't sound like your kind of guy.

"Bill Bowers is a mime that speaks. In this delightful multimedia solo-show, he does both superbly...With his subtle yet commanding physicality and soothing voice that possesses great range, Bowers offers a variety of finely etched characterizations...Director Martha Banta has staged everything with swiftness and clarity...'All Over the Map' is a dynamic vehicle for Bill Bowers and beautifully reflects his vision of humanity with all of its charms, flaws and complexities."

"Bowers fills his show with both lighthearted observations and philosophical thoughts, mixing heartfelt and poignant moments with downright obscure and wacky stories that had me mopping up my wet mascara…He doesn’t push to impose on them any deeper meaning or embellish for the sake of entertainment, nor does he need to: the stories stand on their own as a hilarious, exasperating, and beautiful collection of anecdotes."

“The evening is warm and captivating, a reminder that in these difficult, cynical times, sheer humanity can, at least parenthetically, win. Bowers is a latter day Will Rogers…Director Martha Banta does a lovely job. Action is visually fluid, emotions subtly expressed. Pacing is pitch perfect.”

Theater In The Now

"'All Over the Map' is wonderfully entertaining led by a whimsical performer...There's an ease to Bowers’ storytelling. No matter the tone or content, Bill Bowers is comfortable. You can tell he is a seasoned veteran whether playing verbal storyteller or mute mime...When you leave a solo show feeling as if you now are the performers best friend, it's safe to say the objective was accomplished."

“A crowd-pleaser! Bill Bowers is a compelling storyteller who captivates the attention of his audiences transporting them in space and time to circumstances and situations outside of their current reality. While in retrospect, you may realize the stories Bill Bowers has told are not very substantive, you will nevertheless be entertained and will leave the theater feeling your money was well-spent.”
