A Puppeteer with the Palsy Performs Scenes from Shakespeare

“If I could channel the breath of life through my body, if I could sluice the spirits of passion through my veins, so that every breath I drew could tremble with the stirrings of real life, I could be another Garrick.”

About the Play:

Instead of his usual performance of his favorite scenes from Shakespeare, the master puppeteer, along with his troupe of inanimate thespians, shows us why and how he became a puppeteer. Then, for this night only, he puts on a performance unlike any he has given before.
