21 Jan 2014
In the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts Jan. 23-Feb. 2

"... art for one and for all, straight from the hand, right to the moral core." [Peter Schumann's "The Shatterer" exhibit at the Queens Museum, NY Times review, 11/8/13]

Bread & Puppet Theater is returning to Boston for its 7th annual visit to the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts, this time for a two-week run of The Shatterer of Worlds with evening performances running from January 23 through February 2. The theater is offering discount show tickets in celebration of its 50+ years of performing world-wide. Information about the theater and the show can be found at Preview footage can be viewed here.

The Shatterer of Worlds (chapel with naturalization services for applicants requesting citizenship in the shattered world), a walkabout political puppet performance, will envelop audience and performers alike within the Cyclorama (539 Tremont St. in the South End). Regular general admission ticket price for the 7 pm shows is $15 ($12 for students, seniors, groups of 6+). The theater is offering 2-for-1 tickets for the Wednesday and Thursday performances, and $5 off for Friday through Sunday performances. [The discounts apply to the general admission ticket price.] You can take advantage of this offer either by presenting a copy of this email at the door, or for ordering tickets in advance, call 866-811-4111 (toll free) or visit and use the following codes when ordering to receive the discounts: BPBCA2FR or BPBCA5OFF respectively. Please feel free to share this offer with your pals.

This year, Bread & Puppet's 2 week residency, featuring Artistic Director Peter Schumann and his troupe of puppeteers, will include the evening performances of The Shatterer of Worlds, along with the sale of Bread & Puppet's legendary Cheap Art and the opportunity to savor Schumann's renowned home-made sourdough rye bread smeared with garlic-laden aioli.

If you are interested in participating in the performances, rehearsals for the evening shows will be held in the Cyclorama on Mon.-Wed., Jan. 20-22, from 6-10 pm, with a brush-up rehearsal the following week (date and time to be determined). To volunteer, please email puppetsecretary (at) or leave a message on B&P's Boston info. hotline: 617-286-6694.

"... as Bread and Puppet fans know, distilling political protest into art is a kind of magic." ("Bread and Puppet: Hidden soul of the 60's" editorial, Boston Globe, 9/13/13)
