A Johnny Cash-inspired musical puppet show
Puppet Playlist #17: Johnny CashKraine Theater (85 East 4th Street, New York, NY) Map it $10
If you're wondering what a Johnny Cash-inspired puppet show might look like, you'll be able to find out this week because the gang at Puppet Playlist are sending up the man in black in their newest production. If you aren't familiar with this collective's brilliance, every three months they take on a new musical theme and develop a theatrical event that's a creative mix of puppetry and music. Past subjects have included Tom Waits, David Bowie and Talking Heads. For this Cash-conversant edition, the puppetry of Brodrick Jones, Jake Bazel and Michael Schupbach & Spencer Lott is performed alongside the musical ingenuity of Swear & Shake, Emily Hope Price and more. These productions tend to sell out, so advance purchase is advised.
