Mime Bill Bowers brings show to FLCC

Bill Bowers studied with
Marcel Marceau.
Actor and mime Bill Bowers will bring his off-Broadway hit, “It Goes Without Saying” to Finger Lakes Community College on Thursday, Nov. 11.

The 12:30 p.m. performance will be held in Stage 13, on the second floor of the main campus, 3325 Marvin Sands Drive. Visitors should leave extra time for parking due to construction on campus.

In “It Goes Without Saying” Bowers shares hilarious and heartbreaking true stories from his career and his lifelong exploration of the role silence plays in all our lives.

Written by Bowers, the show takes the audience on a tour of his life thus far – from growing up gay in the wilds of Montana, to his jobs as a performer, to working on Broadway and studying with Marcel Marceau. 

The New York Times called the show "zestful and endearing ... full of life." Backstage magazine says it has “brilliant writing, a profound theme, riveting stories, and Bowers’ warm, winsome personality.”

Bowers’ acting credits include “The Lion King” and “The Scarlet Pimpernel” on Broadway and the film “Two Weeks Notice” with Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant. He also has performed in regional theater and on TV.
A graduate of Rocky Mountain College in Montana, Bowers earned a master’s in fine arts from Rutgers University's Mason Gross School of the Arts. Along with performing on the road, he teaches mime and movement at New York University.

Bill Bowers’ performance is part of the FLCC Celebrates Our Differences Series. For more information, call (585) 785-1905.
