Golem, by Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre
Clay and wood come to life in a marionette musical play based on the Jewish legend of the Golem, a medieval "robot" that runs amok in an attempt to protect the Prague Ghetto. Century-old and contemporary life-size wooden marionettes interact with puppeteers, dancers and musicians.
The Czechoslovak-American Marionette Theatre is based in the East Village.
