In this whimsical puppet show, humankind’s slender hopes reside with the Baby Universe Program, an attempt to breed a new solar system with planets capable of sustaining life. In the show’s charmingly daft conceit, universes don’t merely need nature to develop; they require nurture, too. The puppeteers’ precise, warm performances invest these bags of felt and wire with distinct personalities—I loved a recurring joke about a hint of attraction between a ranking scientist and his subordinate. The puppets’ sense of life comes in large part from their operators’ generous vocal work. (CTK)
