Whedonism VII: Evil Puppet Hijinks

WhedonismFlyer_Web

The Evil League of Ecdysiasts’ annual Joss Whedon-themed burlesque and variety show is back for 2018, with a new venue and an incredible cast from across the country, including Vox Fabuli Puppets from Seattle, Washington, headlining as Puppet Joss.  We Whedon fans joke about how Joss breaks our hearts on the regular…what if the characters could talk back and let us know how they feel about what happens to them?  That’s the premise behind Whedonism VII: Wronged By Whedon.  See Wash, the First Slayer, Black Widow, and more Whedon favorites, June 1st at State Theatre!  More info and ticket link below.  (Flyer by Brit Austin Illustration, photo of Vox Fabuli Puppets by Jules Doyle.)
