Milwaukee’s Angry Young Men Ltd. (The capital letters tell you they’re not just some generic group of angry young men.) is a puppet and performance collective that has been building puppets and putting on multidimensional shows since at least 2007. Their next performances are scheduled for the first two weekends in March at the Soulstice Theatre, 3770 S. Pennsylvania Ave.
They’re presenting “Mixed Tape,” the fourth in a series of live action puppet-comedy-variety shows titled “Full Frontal Pϋppetry.”
From the news release: “One part Japanese Bunraku, One part Vaudeville, and One part Splatter Film, the ‘Full Frontal Pϋppetry’ series is a combination of sketch comedy, musical numbers, political satire, video premieres, and inspired puppet mayhem.”
The collective rates the event PG-13 “for Puppet Gore and an adolescent sense of humor.”
The shows start at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 1; Saturday, March 2; Friday, March 8; and Saturday, March 9. Tickets are $10 at the door. (Plus, there’s an Industry Night pay-what-you-can performance at 7:30 p.m.,Monday, March 4.)
