The award-winning Redmoon Theater's visually stunning Hunchback is both a gripping and at times comic stage adaptation of the classic Victor Hugo novel. With Hugo himself as your guide, wander through the crooked cobblestone streets of medieval Paris and follow the story of a beautiful Gypsy dancer, a grand cathedral and a courageous heart. With striking puppetry, exquisite masks, dramatic music and fearless physicality, Redmoon's intricate production spins Quasimodo, La Esmeralda and Claude Frollo off the page and into thrilling, three-dimensional life. Hunchback is a spectacular Halloween treat from visionary American puppet masters.
Redmoon's Hunchback is a new version of the play that was first presented to critical acclaim in New York eight years ago as part of the Henson International Festival of Puppet Theater. Completely re-staged and reimagined by 500 Clown director, Lesley Bauxbaum Danzig, this new production of Hunchback premiered during Redmoon Theatre's 2007 Chicago season
