The Bread And Puppet Theater

The arrival of Bread & Puppet Theater’s hand-painted old school bus in Hudson is one of the true harbingers of spring – like robins on your front yard, crocuses poking their heads up through the snow and the opening of The Snowman in Troy.

The seven-member troupe pulled into Time + Space Limited in Hudson on Thursday for their 13th annual spring appearance there. Wrapping up a southern tour, T+SL is the final stop before they head home to Glover, Vermont.

This time around, they’re presenting “The Decapitalization Cabaret,” an hour-long romp of funky political vaudeville featuring a variety of skits, songs, dances and a bit of audience interaction. And on Thursday’s opening night performance, they kicked it off with decapitation as well as decapitalization, as a trio of headless capitalists in business suits and briefcases kicked up their heels in a dance mourning their loss of profits, as well as their heads.

DISCLAIMER: Let’s just get this out of the way. I love Bread & Puppet Theater. I’ve seen them perform dozens of times, and I’ve performed with them on several occasions.

And yet, every time that I see them, I am amazed and thrilled all over again.

This weekend, the five-person ensemble is performing “The Dirt Cheap Money Cabaret” at Time & Space Ltd. in Hudson, where the troupe has been making an annual spring tour-stop for the past dozen years.

Bread & Puppet and Time & Space is a perfect match. Both are funky, not fancy. Both are staunchly independent political thinking organizations. And both are thoroughly committed to the betterment of the world.
