Michael Gene Sullivan
Music by Michael Bello
Lyrics by Piero Infante
"I'm pleased to report that Walls bigly and beautifully builds on the troupe's 58-year-tradition of 'fighting oppression, one play at a time'..."
"... with Sullivan's wit, and the talents of this excellent cast under Edris Cooper-Anifowoshe's fast-paced direction, the Mime Troupe strikes just the right balance between comedy and - for too many in this country of immigrants - tragedy."
"I think that there are so many of us who are just questioning what kind of work we should be putting out into the world in order to make the world a better place, and seeing the Mime Troupe show has given me some fuel for that debate."
★ ★ ★ ★ "Troupe resident playwright Michael Gene Sullivan’s latest musical satire, “Walls,” takes aim at immigration crackdowns. That’s certainly been a huge talking point for the current administration, though the play is peppered with sound clips of “nation of immigrants, but a nation of laws” rhetoric from the past few presidents to illustrate that it’s not a new one."
