Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] shows in New York City?


Speaking of shows in New York... and shows in department stores... I 
saw "The Moosleton Lodge" show by Nic Coppola's Puppetworks at Macy's 
in Herald Square today-- and it was great fun!  A really nice looking 
and creative stage, and a variety of puppetry styles in one 22 minute 
show, with narration by Walter Cronkite and a true "star" turn by Julie 
Andrews.  Macy's has really put a lot into the show this year, although 
there didn't seem to be a lot of signs advertising the theatre's 
presence.

It was very nice to see the show itself, and the happy camp rangers who 
staffed the house, but even more so to hear parents calling to their 
children as they made their way through a crowded shop, "we're on our 
way to the puppet show!"

The first live puppet show I ever saw-- a Punch and Judy-- was in a 
Macy's department store.

Did anyone on the list take part in the Pottery Barn for Kids' 
Thanksgiving puppetry event?
