Fodor's Review

Enchanting marionette puppetry is a decidedly lo-fi way to spend a day with children, but perhaps this is the breath of fresh air parents are looking for. Children can sit on the floor as marionettes walk by, or some lucky young patrons get a head pat from a puppet. The ice-cream treat after the show is a staple of the 53-year-old theater, so plan in some extra time to stay and have a snack. There's a tiny counter with some marionettes available for purchase, in case the show has made you curious about the art. Reservations are required and tickets can be purchased online or over the phone.
