50 Years of The San Francisco Mime Troupe
In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the newly re-vamped This Week in Northern California.
In this segment, the San Francisco Mime Troupe celebrates 50 years of irreverent and thought-provoking political theater. The segment follows the Troupe as they mount a performance of their new musical comedy: "Too Big to Fail", and takes a look back at the group's incarnation and early years.
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
Celebrate 50 years of irreverent and thought-provoking political theater with the San Francisco Mime Troupe.
