They make murder and cannibalism look so…cuddly! Puppet Titus Andronicus opens at Theatre Row’s Beckett Theatre on July 30. The Ryan Rinkel-helmed production will run through August 17.
Puppet Titus Andronicus is presented by the Puppet Shakespeare Players, who combine Muppet style puppetry with improvisational comedy and first folio techniques. The show features 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 features 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.
