AGENT:
323 653-3535
SHOW DESCRIPTION:
From the L.A. Times: Puppeteer Steven Meltzer's solo show, 'Puppetolio,' is involving family fun. Ed plays guitar, Fred sings. Toulouse performs feats of balance. Elmer juggles--reluctantly. A drawing comes to obstreperous life. And making it all happen with gentle charm and magic tricks is puppeteer, puppet builder and puppet enthusiast Steven Meltzer. One comic highlight, featuring lively repartee, involves a face on paper that comes to life and threatens to take over the show. In another popular bit, Meltzer's magic rope tricks are part of a tall tale about a magician's hat, jump ropes and a giant. After a silly sing-along comes a guided tour of the small workshop-museum, with Meltzer, whose interest in puppet history and puppeteers is infectious, relating interesting bits of puppet lore. It's a beguiling way to spend some enjoyable family time.
