Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Neville Tranter's Website


When we loaded him in, lots of trunks of fabric and foam bodies, with many  
faces, some Papier mache, some appeared to be celastic. Body puppets were hung  
on special stands, expertly executed with a view to making quick change,  
spatters of sweat on the black stage floor after blackouts in a halo ,  giving 
away the secret locations of his seemingly schizophrenic changes from one  
character to the next, I came away feeling like I saw more than one person  
performing.
Panting, exhausted bows revealed amazingly, only one. Keep in mind this was  
more than a decade ago. Haven't been in a position to see him since. His 
Marilyn  Monroe Character, truly hilarious, frightening, and disturbing, poised 
over the  vent in the street is forever etched in my mind.
