A dreamy fairytale about the perils of creating perfection
Creepy. Macabre. Childish. Puppets are dangerously captivating. In this new musical by speculative fiction guru Ray Bradbury Mr Marionette leads a dreamy gothic fairytale about the perils of creating perfection. The production, masterminded by Gallimaufry Performing Arts’ Steve Josephson, offers quality songs, great dancing and a Tim Burton-esque aesthetic. The second act, written by Josephson jars a little, but is ultimately more rewarding, revealing who is really pulling the strings.
