Curtain rises on a musical theatre troupe poised to make their big break. Cast as puppets, the players move effortlessly on their strings when the curtain rises– and struggle against them as the curtain falls.
Set in Vaudeville style, The Puppet Show toggles between ragtime and pop, burlesque and street dance, patter and spoken word. Projection and movement suggest puppet strings with a clear onstage/backstage contrast that smudges into an unsettling blend of realities.
The Puppets are people we know and, perhaps, are. As their stories unfold, ask yourself, “Who are the puppets? What is the show?”
