    It wasn’t as great a show as many (most?) of the Mime Troupe shows are. Their election-year shows always seem a step down from the rest for some reason. But it was centered in an Occupy encampment and was focused on the fraud, shelfishness and hypocrisy of the 1%. The main occupier character was portrayed as creepy, sinister, manipulative & unendearing although his actual actions didn’t seem that unreasonable (though you can argue that trying to find someone to act as a symbol for the revolution is pointless & counterproductive). The ending was ambiguous, which was OK with me, but the banker’s ingenue, shallow daughter who joined Occupy to get back at an over-endulgent daddy was apparently burned to death in an emcampment fire (though no one finds the body). No one seems to learn much of a lesson about anything. Often Mime Troupe productions are inspiring, this one lacked any sense of epiphany. But I liked one line, “there are revolutions happening all over the world, Egypt, Paris, Oakland….”
