Bread and Puppet theater puts on summer shows that are funny, creative and very concerned with progressive issues. They have an old world feel as well, with brass band, and strange characters. They also have an amazing museum of much of their former work, that is always worth seeing, as it is a testament to their longevity, political awareness, and talent. Peter Schuman still directs and makes bread, and his wife gives the tours. Don't miss it.

My girlfriend and I learned about Bread and Puppet in high school, so we had to go see it for ourselves. It is absolutely amazing to experience. The people are so friendly and outgoing - it really is a welcoming atmosphere. They typically hold two performances in the Summer every weekend. The first is in the Dirt Floor Cathedral (indoors), and was at 7:30pm. This show usually requires more interpretation and prior political knowledge, HOWEVER it is fun nonetheless. The second is the Circus - this year on Sunday afternoons. This takes place outdoors in their large field, and its fun for the whole family. Political messages are still the focal point, but the puppets and dancing makes it fun for the whole family. Make sure to do the museum tour!

We had been told that the theatre was current political theatre and that the puppets were amazing. We went through the museum. It was interesting but here wasn't enough text for us to follow it. There seems to be very little environmental or us political theatre. I think we were expecting a bit more comedy and current political and perhaps environmental themes and instead it felt very amateurish, thrown together, disjointed and humourless. We paid our $30.00 and enjoyed the bread, after a monty Python- esque finale again without lacking humor.
