In Manhattan: A Musical Puppetry Play for Adults

Abrons Arts Center presents

Don Cristóbal, Billy-Club Man
A Lorca-inspired musical puppet play

Co-created by Erin Orr and Rima Fand
Puppet Design, Direction & Set Design: Erin Orr / Music: Rima Fand

March 1, 2 @ 8pm 
March 2 @ 3pm -- March 3 @ 5pm

TeatroStageFest Talkback**
March 2, following the 3pm performance

**Susana Tubert, TeatroStageFest ED, will moderate a Q&A with co-creators Fand and Orr on the development process that led to this imaginative adaptation of two comedic and surreal puppet plays by Federico García Lorca.

For centuries, Don Cristóbal - the Spanish version of the puppet Punch - has charmed audiences with his drunken, lusty billy-club wielding antics. Through  clowning, live music, and experimental shadow, hand, and large figurative puppetry, Don Cristóbal, Billy-Club Man explores the violent appetites of Cristóbal's on-stage persona while revealing his poetic possibilities. .
