Radical puppetry at Grand Street Arts

rpm puppets grand streetThis looks weird and possibly fun: the Grand Street Arts has a performance by the RPM Puppet Conspiracy this Wednesday night. From the blurbage for the show, called "The Standard Model":

Fallacious Physics and Scientific Half-Truths! Alliances and Betrayals! The Latest Protocol on Blinding Laser Weapons!
In a world where Good battles Evil, and where stimulated emissions of photons blur the lines between the two, questions are raised! For instance: Why are there apparent violations of the symmetry between matter and antimatter? What was the nature of the quark-gluon plasma in the early universe? And where are our protagonistʼs eyeglasses?! ...
Donʼt miss this moving exploration of friendship, intergalactic warfare, and the incredible longevity of packaged baked goods, coming to your town for one night only.

Also on the bill for that night: music by Brief Bouts of SPIMES, Redefined Arguments, and _11:34.

Music starts at 8:30. Puppets at 9:15. It's $5.
