THE PUPPET: A reading

By Mark Wurzelbacher, Joe Augustinsky, Brian Davenport

Directed by Catie O'Donnell

The second of three readings in Music Theatre of Madison's Festival of New Musicals.

Though they seem old now, Gilbert & Sullivan were prolific composers in their day, unafraid to use their signature styles to comment (with a wink) on the political doings of their time.  Now, in one of the most controversial political periods in American history, the composers of The Puppet bring G&S' signature style of patter and poetry to a show about something that seems so very far away: The 2020 election.  Join a cast of characters not-so-subtlely standing in for political figures you know and love to hate, as we look three years into the future at the topsy turvy doings of what promises to be another truly historic election.  

Produced by Music Theatre of Madison at Brink Lounge, 701 East Washington Suite 105, Madison
