The Magic Soup and Other Stories by Brad Shur, Puppet Showplace Theater Resident Artist
What do you do when your relatives are coming over for dinner, but there's no food in sight? A young man's search for a family recipe ends up bringing folk tales to life...in his kitchen. Based on a collection of traditional Yiddish stories, "The Magic Soup" teaches that it is those with wit, humor and imagination who have the best chance of filling their bellies -- and fulfilling their dreams. This solo performance combines live acting with table top, rod, and shadow puppets. It is recommended for audiences ages 6 and up.
