The Basic Bye-bye Show
The Basic Bye-bye Show
PUTNEY- Bread & Puppet Theater returns to Next Stage at 15 Kimball Hill on Saturday, March 24, with a new play, “The Basic Bye-bye Show,” a poem on transformation inspired by Dürer’s apocalyptic woodcuts, Brahms’ “Four Serious Songs,” and the daily news.

Bread & Puppet Theater is an internationally celebrated company that champions a visually rich, street-theater brand of performance art filled with music, dance, and slapstick. Its shows are political and spectacular, with huge puppets made of papier-maché and cardboard. Founded in 1963 by Peter Schumann on New York City’s Lower East Side, the theater has been based in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont since the early 1970s.

Tickets are $15, general admission, no one turned away for lack of funds, available online at or at Turn it Up in Brattleboro, or The Putney Coop. For more information contact Maria Basescu at or Josh Krugman at
