The Puppet Maker: A Story of Christmas

When: Nov. 18-Dec. 30 2009

Years ago, my kindergarten class went to see The Little Mermaid at the Simpich theater (now Simpich Showcase, 2413 W. Colorado Ave., simpich.com). I was startled to see the mermaid with black hair, sans a fish sidekick, and a dreadfully unhappy ending: She lost her guy and became an angel. Sparkly and iridescent as she was, she watched him walk into the sunset with another woman! What the hell? Yeah, Simpich shows aren't garden-variety puppet parties. Maybe they've lightened up since then, but regardless, I'd check out The Puppet Maker: A Story of Christmas, which starts today and runs through Dec. 30. Tickets run $8 to $12. — Edie Adelstein

Price: $8-$12
