In December 17th, 2003, The Weekly Dig (a free alternative weekly from Boston), said of my puppetry work in Who’s Afraid of the Virgin Mary that it was “making the ridiculous insane in the best sense.” and that “The Barbie Doll nativity scene alone is worth the ticket price.” Who’s Afraid of the Virgin Mary, was Ryan Landry’s holiday adaptation of Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at Machine in Boston in which I designed, created and activated puppets.
More from Esther Friedman’s write up in the Weekly Dig,
December 17 – 24, 2003, p 29:
“Providence puppeteer, the Marsian makes his Boston debut in Who’s Afraid of the Virgin Mary, making the ridiculous insane in the best sense with his barn animal puppets. None are forgotten in this Christmas stage special: dancing chickens, an angry pig, the donkey in the stall. Rudolf even guards the stage waiting loyally for the Kringles to finish drinking so they can continue delivering toys to kiddies. The Barbie Doll nativity scene alone is worth the ticket price.”
