(Schnitzel)Wonderfully, lovably, hilariously Canadian puppets

Burkett’s latest work is lighter fare than what he usually does. And it’s paying off – it’s easy to see how much he loves his work by the intricacies of his designs and his laughing face as he performs. Watching the puppeteer looming over the puppets is part of the enjoyment of a Burkett production; while it’s easy to be absorbed with the play itself, it’s also worth watching a true master at work.
