Mamma feels very fortunate to have such special shows like this happening in our fine city. We settled in for this 50 minute show to get lost in the the wonder that lives in flying suitcases, behind office doors, in a boat and in outer space.
Office guy Larry is a busy busy man - his workload makes your head spin! Then, one day a suitcase is delivered to his door and we are treated to an adventure with Larry as he starts to unpack the magical contents.
The puppeteers and creators are amazing and often magician like with their tricks, switches, funky t-shirts sets, clever technical moments and of course gorgeous puppets. The characters in the show are funny, endearing and often philosophical....
This is a beautifully produced and performed show with a simple message to deliver to the audience. Make time to have fun - The message rings loud and true as we can easily forget to enjoy our busy busy busy lives. Mamma says, if you do one thing this weekend - catch Larry and the Secret Life of Suitcases.
