The 90 and 92 buses stop at 14th and U - it's a short walk to the theater.

The Studio Theater website gives the address of a nearby parking garage if you are driving. Just go to that lot, which is only a short block away. The daily charge on a Sunday was $20.

There are a few steps up into the house seating, but they have a wheelchair lift available. Recommend the first row of the balcony if you need some legroom. The restroom was accessible and nice.

We took public transit. Moderate walk from the U Street station, great for a nice day.

Some of the puppet designs were visually interesting or clever, but the story was really lame.

BABY UNIVERSE was very entertaining and quite poignant. The range of emotions the puppeteers can call forth from puppets is astonishing. I really felt this play.... continued

Description

Written by Kirjan Waage and Gwendolyn Warnock

The company has toured extensively in Scandinavia, China, and the UK and received the 2011 Obie Award Grant for Outstanding Work.  

_

Baby Universe_, Wakka Wakka’s magnetically whimsical puppet odyssey, was developed in association with Nordland Visual Theatre. Located in the arctic fishing community of Stamsund, the company is the leading developer of visual theatre in Norway, facilitating the creation of traditional puppet theater, as well as works that draw from the visual arts, theater, mime, dance and multimedia.
