About this show

Blair Thomas, Chicago's most acclaimed puppet master, comes to the CWT with Hard Headed Heart, a wonderful trio of interconnected solo shows including: The Puppet Show of Don Cristobal - Based on the bawdy script by Federico Garcia Lorca, this play, performed with wooden hand puppets and a drum kit, is a humorous retelling of the traditional trickster Cristobal's wooing and marriage to the delectable Dona Rosita. St. James Infirmary - Based on the traditional New Orleans folksong, this is a clever, romantic show performed with rod marionettes, a motorized paper scroll and a one-man pit band. The Blackbird - Based on Wallace Stevens' poem "13 Ways of Looking at a Blackbird," The Blackbird is an engaging, inventive shadow puppet show performed on a set of four rolling paper scrolls, lit entirely by lamplight.
