Hot on the release of The Muppets comes some puppets with real attitude in Stuffed and Unstrung. They may look like the family-friendly characters you remember from childhood shows, but these creations are uncensored and have some secrets to share. Watch the performance in two ways—from the large screens above the stage that provide a traditional puppet show, or look to the stage to see the usually hidden puppeteers in action. Each performance is unique; the six puppeteers improvise by taking suggestions from the audience. While there are some throwbacks to Jim Henson originals, know that you’re going to finally see puppets acknowledge that hand up their ass.
