Featuring an experimental improvised piece, mechanical sound sculptures and a massive kinetic sculpture titled Container Man, Bread and Puppet Theater's work is both politically stimulating and awe inspiring. The performance will take place at The Quarry, a former industrial site set on a 12-acre campus in the forest outside of Acton. The avant-garde performance-art piece features Bread & Puppet's signature visual elements, along with movement, vocals and pertinent political social commentary. Sourdough rye will be served and cheap art will be available for purchase after the show. Led by artist Peter Schumann, Bread and Puppet first made its mark in the experimental theater movement of the '60s and '70s in New York and is now thriving in its home in Vermont, independently pursuing its twin goals of art and activism. All sound sculptures were designed by Viktor Lois, the Hungarian-born artistic director of Contemporary Arts International. Learn More

Enjoyable zany play, with the usual Sondheim sound. The performers were very good to excellent, but they weren't miked so I couldn't pick up the words on a good deal of the patter songs. The Lyric Stage is a pleasant venue, and if you park at the 100 Clarendon garage you're only about a block away- very convenient. For this play our Goldstar seats were very good.

I've seen Into the Woods many many times, and this is not one of the better ones. I usually see something new and bold in each performance, but this was pretty basic. If you've never seen this show before, this probably won't disappoint you. ...continued
