Lovely music, Handsome puppets, Confusing script

See it if you are interested enough in the tradition of Czechoslovak puppetry to overlook the fact that the play being presented is poor.

Don't see it if a few lovely musical interludes and 7 handsome puppets are not enough to sustain you through 95 minutes of unengaging script. Read more

Confusing, Disappointing, Great singing, Quirky

See it if you want exposure to Czech puppetry with some interesting puppets and for the musician who plays various instruments and sings very well.

Don't see it if you want an easy to understand story: it was very confusing with some of it hard to hear and some accents difficult in a cavernous space.
