Puppets and Prophecy

Decades of sci-fi films have proved it: Very few people can beat an ominous prophecy — unless The Force is strong with them or they're the Chosen One. But hey, they've gotta try. In Touching Ed Sullivan: A Televisceral Puppet Show, the latest from local puppetry artists Jenny Campbell and Yelena Zhelezov, Dr. Oedipson (Oedipus Rex plus Thomas Edison — get it?) is the sap who tries to outwit destiny. The megalomaniac scientist attempts to become immortal through gratuitous media exposure, only to meet a dire (and foretold) fate. Eek! Dude should just call Keanu. 8 p.m. Show continues at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, January 27 and January 28. DiverseWorks, 1117 East Freeway. For tickets and information, call 713-335-3445 or visit www.diverseworks.org. $6 to $15.
Jan. 26-28
