The Talking Heads As Told by Puppets
It’s pretty simple logic: two separate awesome things become more awesome when combined. Examples: tubbed frosting spread on a graham cracker, cross-breeds of dogs, puppets and the Talking Heads, etc. Sinking Ship Productions has nailed the later combination for their eighth installment of Puppet Playlist.
Puppet Playlist is bi-monthly show where puppeteers and musicians with mad skills team up to create a play based on a musical theme suggested by the audience. Past themes include: Tom Waits, Queen and Prince, country, the seven deadly sins and They Might Be Giants. There is a really obvious joke somewhere about a puppet show inspired by a group called the Talking Heads, but it’s too obvious to verbalize properly. But the important thing is The Talking Heads Puppet Playlist is running tonight and tomorrow, so you’ve got a few chances to see puppets rage it to original songs. It’ll be puppettastic!
