Faust in the Box
This article is from 2009.
Giving Goethe’s classic the hand-puppet treatment in just an hour was never going to be a walk in the park, and unfortunately Bridge Markland has strayed far from the path in this cringeworthy adaptation. The use of pop music to express the characters’ feelings quickly becomes tiresome and the execution of the puppetry is decidedly shaky.
