i went to see puppetup a week (and a day) ago in melb
was a great show and everyone loved it
the crowd replies for ideas was a bit messy (and rude) but we all got the idea quickly

the 90min went really fast

highlight - walking down thru 'chinatown' after the show and the whole cast following in the same direction
shoulda snapped a pic (or 50)

i 'might' be able to find a mp3 recording of the whole show ;)

will post if it comes thru
