A note from Artistic Director Jeff Frank:

“We’ll have actors and set pieces manipulated in the tradition of Japanese Bunraku – puppeteers dressed completely in black to manipulate the actors themselves,allowing us to fly through the clouds and engage in spectacular battles – all within our intimate theater space.”
