Puppets are fun! Anything adapted to include puppets is fun! That must mean Puppet Titus Andronicus is SUPERFUN!!!
From the web site of the Puppet Shakespeare Players:
It’s true, everyone’s favorite Shakespeare canon punching bag…has arrived in New York City! Puppet Titus Andronicus is a fresh, comedic take on Shakespeare’s “worst” play, featuring silly-string gore, a bunch of angry goths, a villainous anthropomorphic boar and all of the deaths, dismemberment, cannibalism and crimes against humanity that make “Titus” the “poetic atrocity” that it is.
Puppet Titus will be performed in The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row (410 w. 42nd st @ 9th ave)
Man, I wish I could see this. If any Fickle Readers out there are in the NYC area, go check it out and let me know how it went! Or, if you’re interested in writing a review, I’ll post it right here on my blog! Go now!
P.S. Randomly enough, I found out about this production from Joyce Carol Oates’s Twitter feed. Thanks, Joyce!
