Stephen mentioned the idea of the puppet Renaissance.
It's something I've been hearing about for more than a decade=2C I'm wondering what folks with more years in the field think.

I remember When being John Malkovich came out=2C and Lion King was a hit=2C and Crank Yankers started=2C some people thought those were signs of a growing popular interest. Then not much changed=2C and Avenue Q came out=2C that was called another sign. But looking back from a decade ago through to now=2C it doesn't seem like a major shift has happened=2C just the steady throb of increasing and fading attention.

But from what I understand=2C we are in the midst of something kind of like a puppet renaissance=2C yet the facts on the ground have not shifted all that much. Or perhaps they have=2C since many unemployed actors and musicians are beginning to discover the joys of (non-union) puppet work.
