Ordinary objects come to extraordinary life in the hands of the members of Mummenschanz. For four decades, the Swiss physical theatre company has used household items, masks, and absolutely no vocals at all to build otherworldly creatures from the ground up—a piece of tubing becomes a giant worm; a cluster of toilet-paper rolls turns one artist’s face into that of a wide-eyed alien being. With such playful innovation at the troupe’s core, it’s no surprise that Jim Henson personally selected them to close out the first season of The Muppet Show back in 1976. And their creativity hasn’t faltered over the years. As The New York Times noted, “if the troupe hasn’t changed, the world has; now the show is particularly vital to young audiences who’ve been raised on beeping gadgets and headphones, and rarely experience the extraordinary power of silence.”

Count Basie Theatre

Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
