Puppets are back in town for the largest puppet fest in the country, in all their creative and colorful glory

Par Rick Kogan

Lying next to a giant Frankenstein monster’s head one night in 1996, under the stage at Steppenwolf Theatre, I was told by a man named Blair Thomas, “We are aware that we are making things that people have never seen before. In that sense we are alchemists. We want to startle and awaken, to allow people to discover the honesty in the way a puppet or object is used.”...

At Under the Radar, Stories Unfold via Sexts, Tweets and Puppeteers

Par Laura Collins-Hugues

(...) Apologies if that plot point is a spoiler, but it is impossible to ruin with mere description the experience of the French-Norwegian company Plexus Polaire’s exquisite “Moby Dick,” a large-scale puppet adaptation of the Herman Melville classic. From its first moment on the vast N.Y.U. Skirball stage, when glittering fish appear, their tails swishing in the darkness, the wondrousness of this show lies in its spectacle and ambience....
