The box office is now open for Puppet Shakespeare Players’ production of Puppet Titus Andronicus off-Broadway. The comedic take on Shakespeare’s most gruesome tale will begin performances on July 24 at Theatre Row’s Beckett Theatre and run through August 17. Opening night is set for July 30. Ryan Rinkel will direct.
Puppet Titus Andronicus is presented by the Puppet Shakespeare Players, who combine Muppet style puppetry with improvisational comedy and first folio techniques. The show will feature silly-string gore, a bunch of angry goths, a villainous anthropomorphic boar and all of the deaths, dismemberment, cannibalism and crimes against humanity that make Titus the "poetic atrocity" that it is.
The cast of Puppet Titus Andronicus will feature Rinkel along with Adam Weppler, Sarah Villegas, Christopher Gebauer, Alex Offenkrantz, Tom Foran, Drew Torkelson, Shane Snider, A.J. Cote, Mindy Leanse, Ross Hamman and Abby Judd.
