The Sound of Silence

by Travyz Santos Gatz

Based on the work of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, the Sound of Silence follows Robert Graham and Anna Hart as they embark on their pursuit of following their dreams in showbiz. The two cross paths at the most renowned theater in Hollywoodland. Robert is working as a stagehand and Anna is starring in her first play. Upon meeting, the two heroes experience love at first sight only to be separated and brought together for the rest of their lives. Will their love be able to persist through the trials and tribulations or will it fall by the wayside? Only one thing is certain…silence is golden, but true love is pure.

Very, very good!

This is one of the best plays I have seen in many years. I have seen it two times and cannot wait to see it for the third time.

Truly one of the most STUNNING physical comedy & heartwrenching history / love story combination of all time. It’s FUN for actors, EXCITING for audiences, and definitely a “must-see-again…” kind of show. “…and again.” It’s good. Very good.

Honestly one of the greatest, most mind blowing piece of theatre I have ever seen… let alone plays. This play encapsulates so much more than just entertainment. You will remember this play days, months, and even years after you see it. Astonishing plot twists and storyline. Amazing work from Travyz.
