Leonardo! A Wonderful Show About A Terrible Monster
The Chicago collective Manual Cinema (Ada/Ava) combines live actors, puppets and filmic techniques to create virtuosic theater experiences. This show, adapted by Sarah Fornace and Drew Dir from two books by the beloved Mo Willems (Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!), is the tale of an incompetent monster in search of someone he can manage to scare. Fornace also directs the show, which features original songs and sound design by Ben Kauffman and Kyle Vegter.
