Puppet Up: Uncensored

Location: Weidner Center for the Performing Arts
Website:

Description: PUPPET UP: Uncensored is a night of outrageous, off-the-cuff comedy featuring 80 original puppets brought to life by a cast of world-class comedian puppeteers from The Jim Henson Company. Created by legendary puppeteer and award-winning director Brian Henson and directed by Patrick Bristow (Ellen, Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Whose Line Is It Anyway?), PUPPET UP: Uncensored is never the same show twice. Based on suggestions from the audience, Patrick and his team of expert puppeteers create a hilarious two-shows-in-one: the improvised puppet action projected live on screens above the stage, with the puppeteers racing around below in full view of the audience. The show also features recreations of classic pieces originally created by Jim and Jane Henson and Frank Oz that haven’t been seen by live audiences in decades. This is no ordinary puppet show!
