Puppet Tears: Puppetry Shop Talk

Oct 10, 2018

This week, the guys are joined by puppeteer and veteran Muppet performer from Sesame Street -- Martin Robinson! He is best known for bringing life to characters such as Telly Monster, Mr. Snuffleupagus, and Slimey the Worm. Martin also has a remarkable history on stage, most notably as the original designer, builder, and puppeteer of Little Shop of Horrors's Audrey II.

We'll talk to Martin about developing backstories and the physical demands associated with performing his signature characters. We will also spend some time discussing his involvement with The National Puppetry Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center -- specifically developing his immersive performance piece, All Hallows Eve, a re-imagining of Hansel & Grettel.
