An engaging account of a fascinating troupe of artists.
1 June 2004 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

This engaging account of a truly fascinating troupe of artists is much more than I expected when I first saw it. The artists broke ground by doing what no one else was doing at the time(the 1930's - 1950's). They each had unique skills which eventually brought them star filled audiences in their Hollywood theatre. The puppet shows were complete musicals as were the cabaret-style performances on a second stage. The songs were all original compositions and often mirrored what was going on in the world, and Hollywood, at the time. After viewing the film I searched to find out as much as I could about the 3 men who formed the troupe and of the "real" performers who graced their stage. It was the most unique theatre and has no equal today.
