A perfect place to know and have a little fun. Was incredible see how simple and progressive (at the same time) they can touch us.

Wonderful series of character vignettes told in a theatrical and engaging way. Magical: even when you know it is simply articulated dolls manipulated by two actors, you can't help believing that they are individual characters with deep and meaningful stories to tell. Book early- it's...More
