Brewery Puppets

SO far as Brad Brewer is concerned, a puppet is not a puppet is not a puppet. Rather, a puppet is ”the fantasy and magic I loved as a child and all the elements of art – sculpture, drawing and painting – that interest me as an adult artist.”

Add a hefty helping of show business by way of music and dance and the underlying element of black pride and history, and you have the Brewery Puppet Troupe, one of the country’s few African-American puppet ensembles.
