About the show

All For One Theater presents Bill Bowers' solo autobiographical comedy about his 30 years on the road as a performer in 50 states and 25 countries. More…

Bill Bowers takes you places so unbelievable they could only be true. He has performed on Broadway, at the Kennedy Center, the White House, and in some of the finest grade-school cafetoriums across the country. He shares indelible memories and characters who will stay with you long after lights up.


"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."

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." Full Review

Stage Buddy

"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." Full Review

Woman Around Town

“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.” Full Review

Applause! Applause!

“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.” Full Review

Funny, Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Great staging

See it if want to hear true stories, well told with great use of mixed media. Some stories will touch you deeply and some will make you laugh out loud

Don't see it if if...I could think of one reason not to see this, I would tell you

Funny, Original, Refreshing, Resonant, Entertaining

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.

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

Clever, Great acting, Relevant, Slow, Entertaining

See it if not sure about my opinion on the show right now.

Don't see it if thinking about it
