See it if Saw the new bread and puppet. See it if you like radical theater with puppets.
Don't see it if If you do not care how meaningless a show is. Bad jokes, stupid scenes just awful.
See it if Can get tickets!
Don't see it if If you got tix and you don't appreciate it!
"Topics that called for farce, drama, or satire were reduced to feel-good images and naïve dichotomies…A generation that came of age with Stewart’s 'Daily Show' expects to be given some information when a news story is lampooned.

"A nearly 60-minute cavalcade of vibrant circus animal puppet acts, and delightful dances …Founder and artistic director Peter Schumann once again creates vibrant and evocative clouds, waves, animals, and trees from the simplest combinations of color and papier mache…In this festive circus format, Bread and Puppet raises awareness about issues of social justice in ways that are both entertaining and thought-provoking. And the bread is good, too."
