The Resurrection Circus of 1998 was the last annual performance, following a violent death in the campground. Schumann permanently shut the circus down, promising to do only a few smaller events in the future.
Beginning Wednesday, March 21, though, the Museum of Art celebrates all that once made Bread & Puppet Theater great. An installation of the spectacular puppets, "The Art of the Puppet," is on display until June 30, and the museum will sponsor a rare production of Our Domestic Resurrection Circus on April 21. Additionally, in conjunction with the Broward County Main Library, Bread & Puppet will participate in the Main Library's Reading Festival set for April 21 and 22. Just checking out the puppetry display makes a visit to the museum worthwhile, though another trip is definitely in order when the circus itself comes to town.
