WHAT IS A PUPPET SLAM?
It's an evening of varied theatrical mini-plays for adults that use (or sometimes abuse) puppets for all or part of the drama. Each piece is performed by a different artist or artists, and the content can be wide-ranging; some are elegant or poignant, others are satiric, irreverent, or humorous, and still others can be passionate, political, or spiritual in nature. The performers range from the seasoned professional to the nascent puppeteer, and often include musicians, dancers, mimes, actors, and other sundry affiliated artists.
Boston's only evening puppetry cabaret returns this July with an exciting line up of short-form acts created by and for adults. Slam pieces range from silly to sophisticated, from profound to profane. Live music, a cash bar, and puppet store make this an event you won't want to miss!
