“[Under a Montana Moon is] Like George Baily in “It’s a Wonderful Life,” Bill Bowers lassos the moon... it plunges beneath a lovely cliché – capturing the moon – to capture immensity. It’s heartstopping. No wonder Bill Bowers received a standing ovation.”
                                                          - Cathy DeDe of The Chronical

“This production is a combination of his heart, mind, and body, and though he never speaks a word, you hear his message loud and clear.”
                                                          –Adrienne Cea, OffOff Broadway Review

Bill Bowers was doing a residency with McArther theatre “Genius” Anna Deavere Smith at Harvard some years back, when she asked him a question which inspired him to write. The result was “Under A Montana Moon.”

After winning standing ovations throughout the United States and Europe, “ Under a Montana Moon” will be performed as part of the Centenary Stage Company Black Box Festival Nov 15, 16, 17 & 18th in the David and Carol Lackland Center in Hackettstown.

“She asked me,” Bowers said of Anna Deavere Smith, ‘Why are you a mime?’ And it started me thinking about why I am drawn to silence, and I really began to investigate silence in the world. And I realized that something transformational happened to people when they learn to sit and experience something in silence. I believe that it is one of the reasons that the theatre has taken up a position as one of the sacred places in our world. Bowers had the opportunity to study with the famed Marcel Marceau.

Widely known for his performance as Zazu in the Broadway production of Lion King, Bowers also performed the role of Leggett in the Broadway production of The Scarlet Pimpernel. He has performed around the world, and on such prestigious national stages as Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, Radio City Music Hall. He has been seen on numerous television programs, including Law and Order and One life to Live.

Under A Montana MoonA native of Montana himself, the performance is comprised of a collection of silent coming-of-age stories told under a western sky, taking the audience on a journey that is hilarious, heartbreaking, and profoundly moving. Performed within a tapestry of sounds without words, this silent journey is reported to leave audiences speechless.

Bill Bowers' critically acclaimed Under a Montana Moon is a collection of silent stories which all take place under the Western sky. Performed without words and within a tapestry of sound, Bill takes the audience on a journey that is hilarious, heartbreaking, and always profoundly moving. Under a Montana Moon uses the Art of Silence to investigate the Idea of Silence: to remain silent, to be silenced, to silence someone else.
