Looking forward to having you join us!

Mary Curtin (on behalf of Bread & Puppet)

 *“The audience of cynical New Yorkers in attendance …
audibly responded to the beauty and
pathos in these simple puppets.
We collectively gasped with pleasure and awe as
a giant puppet descended as if from the sky and
hovered over us,
very nearly within our reach ...
we are still willing to step into
this allegorical world and be transported.
In fact, we long for it.”*
[New York Theatre Review,
review of the recent NYC run of
*The Possibilitarians* and *Dead Man Rises*, Dec. 2012]
