The Flying Donkey Cabaret. A mouthful of words, and a familiar group is behind the performance. DC's Puppet Underground has previously performed in Mount Pleasant and Columbia Heights; and they are back with a new show.
This show is tonight! It's being held across the street from Mount Pleasant at the Trinity AME Zion Church (Oak and 16th Sts NW). 8:00pm. There is a sliding scale donation, $5-$15.
Puppet Underground can describe the show much better than I can summarize it so here you go:
"An Evening of Impossible Cardboard & Brass Entertainments brought to you by an illustrious band of traveling puppeteers; a roadshow of puppets, music & genuine good old times featuring lifesize dancing donkeys, a junky trombone, drum & fiddle ensemble & lo fi picture shows of all sorts!
Come see some of our favoritest puppeteers from around the country! We have:
The Dolly Wagglers from Portland, Maine, bringing a freshlowbrow crudeness to the world of puppetry, with cardboard operettas, crankyshows (low-tech scrolling pictures) and cantastorias painted on the dirty sheets of America.
We'll see you there!
