Words cannot describe the unique mime-masque troupe in "Mummenshanz" perform mime as you've never seen it in a dazzling succession of silent, odd - and not so odd - creatures and objects that is guaranteed to turn your imagination inside out. Jack Honor, Donald VanHorn and Pilar Garcia form the parts of the whole known as Mummenschanz. The three young Americans have inherited the roles originated some 10 years ago by the European Mummenschanz creators: Andres Bossard, Floriana Frassetto and Bernie Schurch.
