Very unusual. Quirky. Whimsical. Get in touch with your inner sense of wonder and awe.

It was enjoyable enough. Thought it would be really good for young kids but it wasn't - my kids got bored of it pretty quick as did the child sitting next to us (my kids go to plays all the time and love them). Some of the acts dragged on a little...continued

This might have been good for a kids party but given the running time I might have fallen asleep in the back yard like I did in Zellerbach Hall to this big snoozer.

Never miss a chance to see Mummenschanz! I saw them 40 years ago, and for a second time here. Great for kids and adults.

dated, juvenile and a bit dull...
For kids under 6 years old...it would be creative and fun.

This was one of the most creative performances I have seen. Glad I caught this show, won't forget it.

Very creative, innovative, and as entertaining as I remember seeing them on T.V. when I was 8. This is a great group to see, but next time I would like to see it in the company of small children and get seats as close to the front as possible....continued

This was a great show for kids. We felt it was a little too long, we ended up leaving at the intermission. It was entertaining for the first half, but we couldn't imagine sitting through another hour of it.

We enjoyed the variety and inventiveness. The sketch with the clay masks was too hard to see in a venue this size, but most of their sketches involved larger elements and were delightful. It would have been nice to have had two 45-minute sets...continued

We were sitting too far away. I think we would have enjoyed Mummenshanz more in a smaller venue. In the darkness and silence, all four of us grew very sleepy.

Felt dated, repetitive, and slow. The refusal to use sound or music is admirable, but doesn"t work. Even kids must have been bored...

I saw this show 15 years ago on a school field trip and was excited to be able to see it again! (This is their 40th anniversary show!) The performance was just as magical as it was back then. :) A very kid-friendly show, definitely worth seeing!

I think the show was a bit silly and was more for kids rather than adults.

I went with my 7-year old daughter and unfortunately our "PRIME" seats were in the very back of the orchestra and she had trouble seeing anything. She lost interest quickly and we ended up leaving early. I saw the show when I was a little girl in...continued

It would be great if the play can be divided in two parts, our kids loved it but they were getting too tired and did not want to stay till the end.
