For almost 40 years, the Bread and Puppet Theater has engaged audiences with its unique blend of political satire and surreal imagery. Under the guidance of German-born director Peter Schumann, Bread and Puppet was founded in New York City in 1963, and moved to Vermont in 1970. A new book called “Rehearsing with Gods” traces the history and philosophy of Bread and Puppet. The book combines photographs by Ronald Simon of Montreal, and text by Bread and Puppet veteran Marc Estrin. Neal Charnoff talks with Estrin about the book and the theater group.
