The Bread and Puppet Theater
The Bread and Puppet Theater was founded in 1963 on New York City's Lower East Side, with the belief in puppet theater as a wholesome and powerful language that can touch men and women and children alike. The concerns of the first productions were rents, rats, police, and other problems of the neighborhood. More complex theater pieces followed, in which sculpture, music, dance and language were equal partners--during the Vietnam War, block-long processions and pageants involved hundreds of people. Now based on a farm in Glover in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, Bread and Puppet is one of the oldest, nonprofit, self-supporting theatrical companies in the country.

"The Bread & Puppet Theater has been so long a part of America's conscious struggle for our better selves, that it has become, paradoxically, a fixture of our subconscious."- Andrei Codrescu, NPR commentator

"...a refreshing reminder of the vitality and power of street theater." - The New York Times
