An informal survey of the first performance of The Animals and Children Took to the Streets brought the words macabre, bleak, hilarious, Amelie, Burton, and dystopian. The combination of projected animation and live action singing and performance is expertly paced and realized. Here are a few photos and a quick video of a preview we got on Friday. The schedule of performances can be found here.
