Puppets For Adults

Last night the boy and I went to see the Center For Puppetry Arts showing of Avanti, Da Vinci!

If you’re a bit skeptical of going to a puppet show, get over it. It was an amazing show. The puppets themselves were beautiful pieces of art, but the stagecraft is really what amazed us.

The stage provides several mini-stages for different scenes and backdrops. The accompanying music is equally delightful.

The quintessential Renaissance Man, Leonardo Da Vinci, fashions himself to be a Batman-like caped crusader of the same name to keep the city of Florence safe during the 1400s. Such capers as the corrupted Vatican of the Borgias and the kidnapping of Mona Lisa provide a backdrop of some fun scenes and hilarious exchanges. As an adult-only show, get ready for topics such as incest, drunkenness, sex, and a whole lot of Catholic-bashing. Puppet sex! Fun!

These shows tend to sell out, so get your tickets now (the show has been extended to July 10th).

    I’ve been told to see that, so I guess I should get off my ass and actually do it, especially since I live like 4 blocks away. But the thought of puppet sex kind of freaks me out.
