Ok, I just saw the show and I would agree withthe original revue on some points. I thought that the acting was good. I am a big fan of the silent/clown street performers and that is what these woman reminded me of. I also really liked the puppents, a very novel idea, hoever, the novelty did where off fast. The fact that there was no real point to the show made it also a bit more unsettling. But I liked it, especially the puppets made of tape, very clever! The concept is unique and I see it possibly being picked up by more of a caberet, or even children theatre (the little boy in the front row at the performance I saw was laughing at every moment.)
