Mummenschanz mystifies and delights at the Shubert
The Swiss-based physical-theater troupe Mummenschanz is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year — a pretty good run for performers who don’t speak. Which is not to say they don’t communicate. The troupe’s creations are zany and full of fun, and no matter what form — from slinkies to an electric socket — the performers take, they have something poignant to say about the human condition. At the Citi Shubert Theatre, they pack 27 sketches into just under two hours (including a 25-minute intermission).
