An Excruciatingly Ordinary Toy Theater Show

When: Sat., Jan. 13, 8-10:30 p.m. 2018

Puppet artist Zach Dorn was out of town for a while — you know, his little year in Japan on a Julie Taymor World Theater Fellowship. But tonight he offers the Pittsburgh premiere of An Excruciatingly Ordinary Toy Theater Show. Dorn, known here for his work with Miniature Curiosa, has performed this 2015 show in cities around the U.S. It’s a wry anthology of 10 short autobiographical stories set in Pittsburgh and built around his efforts to reclaim a security deposit from his landlord; the performance is presented via live video feed from cameras zooming through “tiny illustrated worlds.” The evening at Glitter Box Theater also includes short performances by comics artist Nate McDonough, artist DS Kinsel, and puppeteers Murphi Cook, Felicia Cooper and Dave English.-Bill O'Driscoll
