Gregg Goldston has been called: “…a star performer” by the New York Times and “...among the best” by Marcel Marceau. His show “Louder than Words is a blazing display of physical virtuosity filled with comedy, drama and mesmerizing illusions will thrill you with the magical power of mime.
Throughout his performance, he will struggle with a mystical hat that takes control of his body, become a three-member Jazz group arguing over who’s the best, be pulled into the air by an umbrella with a mind of his own…and more. Goldston’s plays will not only keep you laughing, but will make you believe the unbelievable, see the invisible, and experience the pure love of life itself.
