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.
