The Baffo Box Show by Modern Times Theater
Two slapstick chaps keep the sun, moon, and everything else running on schedule, while juggling and dancing their way through the day’s chores. This delightful show riffs on the Punch and Judy tradition and vaudeville comedy!
Performed in a one-of-a-kind wearable stage, this show packs classic hand puppetry, colorful scenery, and stand-up comedy into a cardboard box and delivers it live on stage!
Meet the Baffos — two slapstick chaps who keep the sun, moon, and everything else running on schedule. From the moment the lid opens, audiences are captivated as the Baffos juggle and dance their way through the day’s chores, despite the undeniable evidence that their world is changing.
A daring work of puppetry and object manipulation, full of vintage vibes, junk music sonatas, and Modern Times Theater’s unique brand of all-ages comedy.

Modern Times Theater has been making and touring puppet shows and variety acts, and creating public community events since 2007.

Working in populist theater forms, they seek to reinvent and reimagine classic American entertainment. Co-founders Rose Friedman and Justin Lander are a husband and wife duo, producers for Vermont Vaudeville, and alumni of the Bread and Puppet Theater.
