Handsome Devils Puppets

IMG956919.jpg

"Into Glow, Out of Gloom: a puppet show featuring handsome marionettes in vignettes of folktales, murder ballads, and original songs that I've found strength in over time and have chosen to use puppets to pass along to you. My shows are a stripped down, always honest, often macabre, frequently laughable exploration of the power of your person and of course the power of puppets to help you find that." - Han

Doors open at 8pm
*Suggested donation $10-15
Show starts at 8:30pm
