What you want? If what you want is puppets + music, then baby, we’ve got it. It’s Puppet Playlist #29: Aretha Franklin.

Every few months, we invite a group of talented puppeteers and musicians to create original works of puppetry and exciting reinterpretations of music based on a particular musical theme (voted on by the audience at the previous show).

Have some R-E-S-P-E-C-T for yourself and reserve your seats early to avoid waiting in the standby line.

Featuring puppetry by:

Michelle Finston, Playlab NYC, Ali Goss and Lila Reyes, Felicia Cooper, Kaitee Tredway, Serious Theater Collective, and Marte Ekhougen with Jessi Almstead & Stav German

Featuring musical performances by:

Neil Tyrone Pritchard, Amy Beth Anders, Grace Galu, Color Collage, The Foxy Johnstons

Past Playlist themes have included: Tom Waits, The Magnetic Fields, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Beyoncé, Whitney Houston, Dolly Parton, and many more.

Since the first show in 2009, Puppet Playlist has played to often sold-out audiences. Previous performers (and their work) have been seen all over New York and throughout the world, on, off- and off-off-Broadway, Shakespeare in the Park, the Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center, with Jim Henson Productions, Sesame Street, and The Muppets.

Puppet Playlist is a presentation of Sinking Ship Productions and The Tank, and is made possible in part by generous funding from the Puppet Slam Network.
