Hand Puppets are Never Funny | If Book of Mormon and Avenue Q had a Baby, This Would Be It!
Nominated for 5 Tony Awards! Deep in the heart of Broadway, there lurks an outrageous, scandalous and totally surprising creature. Meet Tyrone, the scene-stealing, satanic puppet who shakes a small Texas town to its core. In this provocative, hilarious production, Tyrone riffs on everything from love to faith. Because isn’t it both sinfulness and saintliness that make us all truly human? And utterly alive.
“Flat-out hilarious. A true tour de force.” – The New York Times
“Ribald and wickedly funny. Sesame Street meets The Exorcist.” -The Wall Street Journal
“I don’t know which I want to do more: Sing Hallelujah—or wash its dirty little mouth out with soap” – Deadline
8 Shows a Week: Tuesdays-Thursdays at 7pm | Fridays at 8pm | Saturdays at 5 & 8:30pm | Sundays at 2 & 7pm
Advisory: This play may contain puppets, but it is definitely not for children! Trust us on this… the play contains strong language and adult situations.
