Shoemaker & Elves @ Center is Funny not Grim(m).

'The Shoemaker and the Elves' just prooves what kind of great work The Center for Puppetry Arts continues to do. Even if you don't have kids go see it.

The Adaptation is first rate. Really good script, which the performers take to the next level. Nancy Riggs and Aaron Gotlieb move all the puppets (and there are a dozen or more!) and perform all the dialogue. They have great chemistry and both have top comic timing. The result is hilarious.

The shadow puppetry will stun as will Mr. Gotlieb's transformation of an upper crust boston woman. The Dance Sequences and 'go to sleep' sequences are also very funny.

Props to the Stage Manager of this show as well as she does all the Sound FX fills and had great timing as well! There is a dancing Jackhammer scene which will knock your socks off.

The show is about an hour, which for this story is the perfect length, and afterwards, you'll leave thinking "That was great!.. but I could really use a piece of cheese cake". Why? Be there and find out! [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
