From May 29th to June 1st I performed three numbers,
Lonesome Road, Shortnin' Bread and Skip to my Lou
from a current work entitled
Frances Faye's Folk Song Sing-A-Long
as part of Labapalooza, a festival of new puppet theater
Frances Faye's Folk Song Sing-A-Long is based on the 1957 jazz/folk album Frances Faye Sings Folk Songs. With songs sung and swung in Faye's indelible style, including her alternative lyrics and comedic banter, this work for object theater sets such classics asLonesome Road, Skip to my Lou and Shortnin' Bread in motion, through a combination of animated text, bold visuals and D.I.Y chutzpah.
