In the summer of 2012, I was commissioned by Players by the Sea, a Florida based theater company, to build the entire ensemble of puppets for their production of Avenue Q. Directed by Shirley Sacks, the show was an enormous hit and sold out weeks in advance. I was fortunate enough to sneak in towards the end of their run and meet the actors who brought my puppets to life. It was wonderful working with such an enthusiastic and dedicated crew. I designed and built all of the puppets for the show, and called on the talents of Emily Schubert to construct my costume designs.
