Hand-carved wooden marionettes make merry for the kids. – The Scene
This converted storefront off Park Slope's two main drags sports a quiet, understated facade. The uninitiated might easily overlook the hidden theater behind the darkened grated windows. On weekends, the space accommodates up to 75 audience members in the bright-green main room. What attracts them all are the marionettes made by founder Nicolas Coppola, as they faithfully reenact classic children's lit and international folk tales.
In 1976, Macy's constructed a marionette theater especially for the troupe, which in turn performs a holiday show at the shopping monolith every year. Puppetworks is involved in art as well as commerce--having performed with the Little Orchestra Society, St. Luke's Chamber Ensemble, the Orchestra da Camera and even the Brooklyn Philharmonic.
