Review by peanutduck

Nancy Aldrich and Omar Vargas's script, spun from Mexican and Argentinean tales of friendship, dedication, and family, is spare, sweet, with clever touches of adult-level wordplay. Puppets, enlivened by Brian Allard and Dia Verano through whimsical vocal characterizations and deft maneuvering, elicit more delight and sorrow than many human actors.

Good to know you are out there, Peanut Duck. Thought you might have retired. There are a lot of great shows out there going unreviewed. Interesting what you seem to like ....
