All Weather Ballads 

click to enlarge stage_rev-1.jpg

Ironically, Tropical Storm Lee flooded areas of Vermont and interfered with the operations of Sandglass Theater, which brings its puppet theater production All Weather Ballads to New Orleans this week. In the piece, a small village is affected by harsh winter weather and a wet spring thaw. All Weather is a love story about a couple destined to meet and spend their lives together. Sandglass generally uses detailed hand-held puppets and a style of theater that emphasizes storytelling through movement instead of dialogue, but this piece is narrated by company cofounder Eric Bass via five original folk ballads, and with music played by Nick Keil. Each performance will be followed by a discussion about cultural identity. There is a free puppet theater workshop with members of Sandglass at 6 p.m. on Thursday. Tickets $20 general admission, $15 CAC members, $10 students. — Will Coviello
