Tagged: puppet theater reviews
I’ve created a new blog site featuring puppet performance reviews I wrote while living in New York City from 1999-2009. During those 10 years I reviewed shows by Ralph Lee, Basil Twist, Gretchen Van Lente, Janie Geiser, Liz Joyce, Kevin Augustine, Lake Simons, Edward Einhorn and many more.
My intent in creating a blog with this collection of reviews is to provide a model for other reviewers, both in and our the puppet world. As you are well aware, puppet performances are often given short shift by many commercial theater reviewers who are oftentimes unfamiliar with puppetry as a theatrical art form and sometimes don’t take the work seriously.
Because of my extensive background in stage puppetry I have treated the performances in my reviews with respect and have given an honest evaluation of performers’ intents.
I believe it’s beneficial to puppeteers and the public at large to visit a blog site dedicated specifically to reviews of puppet shows. My goal in creating “Puppets In Review” is to demonstrate that puppetry should be given as serious consideration as any other performing arts genre.
In addition to my own reviews, I’m inviting others to contribute to this blog. I’m asking your help in spreading the word about this new blog site and help it grow into a valuablel resource.
Here’s the blog address:
