See it if you’d like to see a lovely extension of the European tradition of puppetry, a blending with aspects of Eastern puppetry.
Don't see it if a puppet show, even a lovely one, would bore you.
See it if you'd enjoy a different type puppet show with few words, great music, a fairy tale story represented with seen operators on a great set.
Don't see it if you require a lot of action - this is a leisurely paced story of a girl to adulthood and old age where you must pay attention to understand.
“An exquisite feast of puppetry storytelling with magic in every one of its crinkly folds...The show is a triumph in puppetry design...The use of light and shadow is also magnificent, adding breathtaking texture and depth to what can easily become a two-dimensional display...70 minutes of complex, finely tuned storytelling: there isn’t a single choice unexamined, or an object left unused...Simply perfect.”
"Visually splendid story...So many details are rendered through this extraordinarily fine storytelling. This show has both a romantic sensibility and a playful wittiness. Recognizable moments provide happy laughs...Puppetry is alive and well all over New York City these days. 'Unfolding' is a joyous example of this fine artistry."
