PERFORMANCE: PHENOMENAL PAINTERS AND PUPPETS
Many say that Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were geniuses. But did you know that procrastinator Leonardo frequently didn't finish what he started and that the sometimes peevish Michelangelo got into bitter fights with other artists? Featuring colorful puppets and lots of audience participation, Galumph Performance Troupe's Da Vinci's Defense is a wildly imaginative story about a time when these two artists were forced to work together. Auditorium.
