Interview: Michael Gene Sullivan about “Seeing Red” by the San Francisco Mime Troupe

Michael Gene Sullivan, in conversation with KPFA associate theater critic C.S. Soong.

The San Francisco Mime Troupe’s current production, “Seeing Red: A Time-Traveling Musical,” juxtaposes the current political conjuncture with a time in the U.S. when socialism wasn’t a dirty word. Veteran actor, writer, and Mime Troupe member Michael Gene Sullivan plays two roles in the production: a present-day bartender and a union leader in 1912. “Seeing Red” runs through September 9 in parks and other venues throughout the Bay Area and beyond.
