I am going to Tokyo to bid farewell at a gathering on March 27, in honor of Mitsuo Tamura, a longtime collaborator and friend of GOH Productions.

Mitsuo died on November 21, 2014, a day after his 67th birthday. Farewell Mistuo! We recall more than 20 years of working together.  Forever in our hearts.

Vit Horejs of CAMT meets Slovak President Kiska

Director Vit Horejs met with President of Slovakia, Mr Kiska, at a recent reception in NYC at the Slovak residence.  The President was very impressed by Czechoslovak American Marionette Theatre’s vast activities, and they spoke for a while about NY and culture and their mutual immigrant stories.  It turns out that Mr. Kiska worked as a construction assistant in NYC in the 1980s for the whopping sum of $4 per hour!

What a journey from painting apartments in Astoria to the Presidency!  Vit topped him, earning $6 an hour during his first days in NY.

Annoucing Don Juan, or, The Wages of Debauchery!

April 10 to May 4, 2014

A traditional Czech Marionette play with some not-so-traditional touches; adapted and directed from an anonymous play of itinerant puppeteers by Vit Horejs.

In this production, Downtown meets the Folk Tradition. High and low, live performers and puppets of disparate sizes are blended to a startling comical and sometime touching effect. The puppets include antiques, puppets designed and constructed by master carver Jakub Krejci, toy puppets by Prague-based Milos Kasal, and a giant surprise by Alan Barnes Netherton. The actor/puppeteers are Deborah Beshaw, Otis Cotton, Tess Wonson, Vít Horejs and Theresa Linnihan. Costumes are by Theresa Linnihan and Egypt Dixon. Set design is by Theresa Linnihan and Alan Barnes Netherton. Music, performed by John Bowen, is composed expressly by Court Kappelmeister Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
