Is currently playing at the Berkeley Rep. Combining people with hand puppets, its origins harken back a couple of thousand years. Realistically – think Punch & Judy Shows. The themes were most certainly adult and the casting was amazing. At least if you are from Minnesota and had ever met a Lutheran pastor (father of a med school classmate).
It was a great way to end an otherwise stressful day which involved a lot of time running errands, sorting stuff and spending hours stuck in traffic.
Hint – if you ever visit San Francisco, do not EVER attempt to drive in the city after 1700 on a Friday. Let me amend that to any evening in rush hour. Further adding to the challenge was rain. So there we are, gridlock + oblivious pedestrians who can’t see where they are going because of umbrellas. This almost guarantees that one of them is going to blindly cross the street against the light. Just about the time that the traffic on the other side of the intersection moves just enough that one (1!) car could have gotten across.
Where was I? Jason, Jessica, Timothy + puppets + a couple of adults. Interesting take on “did the devil really make him do it?” Fake blood folks.
