Puppet Tears: Puppetry Shop Talk

May 6, 2020

Pam Arciero returns to Puppet Tears for an exciting part-two of our ongoing conversation (plus our first guest interview during shelter-in-place). Pam is the veteran Muppet performer best known for her role as Grundgetta Grouch, and is also Artistic Director of the National Puppetry Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center.

As our second returning guest, Pam catches us up on what effects COVID-19 is having on this year's puppetry conference, how future seasons of Sesame Street may reflect the pandemic in its curriculum, and the implications that social distancing can have on puppet performing. We also discuss a topic she most wanted to bring up, what style of puppetry she hopes will see a resurgence, and a brand new puppet tears story you won't want to miss!
