Though I'm back in Los Angeles, I still periodically think about that joyous play I saw at the wonderful Writers Theatre in Glencoe, Illinois, outside of Chicago, The Old Man and the Old Moon. The other day, I waxed enthusiastically here about it. As I said, it was a hugely creative, whimsical and charming -- and terrific-- show. I came across two other very good videos which, while little description or video will likely do the evening justice, complement each other very well and both give a good sense of the show.
This first video shows how they do one of the fun shadow puppetry segments in the show -- a whale and group of sharks attacking a ship on the high seas.
And this follow-up video is an extended sequence on board that ship, which demonstrates how some of this high seas puppetry actually fits into the show -- along with the use of songs and clever staging.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
