Great staging, Exquisite, Enchanting, Delightful, Clever

See it if you admire lyrically and artistically beautiful puppetry and music, minimal text re women’s emotionality, spirituality, and literary voice.

Don't see it if you do not enjoy puppetry as art and poetry or prefer large casts, elaborate costumes or sets, loud melody-less music, or hip hop/jazz dance

Inventive, Magical, Lovely to look at, Lightweight, Metamorphic

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. Read more

Inventive, Entertaining, Slow, Delightful, Absorbing

See it if you would enjoy something very unusual--slow moving, inventive, romantic puppetry with great live music. It is enchanting and quite lovely.

Don't see it if you don't like puppets or can't handle a very slow paced and quiet show. It is rather "feminist" in theme so right-wing folks might object.

Slow, Quirky, Delightful, Enchanting

See it if you like puppetry and want to see something beautiful and unusual.

Don't see it if you need a lot of action or an easy to follow story (it gets a little abstract at the end - or maybe I just didn't "get it")

Delightful, Slow, Entertaining, Great staging, Clever

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.

Theatre is Easy
April 2nd, 2019

“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."
