If you’ve seen Jocelyn Wildenstein, you’d remember her. Now you can see a puppet show based on her life – probably very loosely based, I’m guessing – called Bride of Wildenstein – The Musical, a show about an aging socialite… Well, it’s a horror tale.
In Bride of Wildenstein – The Musical, an aging socialite grows fur and claws to recapture her philandering game hunter husband’s attention. Using puppets and masks to augment the body, this solo cabaret performance playfully unpacks desire and the contagion of identity with songs that examine the making of a monstrosity.
