Last night we went to the Forest Theater to see a puppet show. If you're picturing a little puppet stage with somebody crouching behind it, think again. These were giant puppets that filled the whole stage. Grasshoppers riding bikes! Mayflies on stilts! A maggot made out of bicycle tires! The show was "I Am An Insect" by Paperhand Puppet Intervention. It was a beautiful evening for outdoor theater, especially at the end, when real fireflies were glowing onstage around the puppeteers playing bugs.
