I caught this yesterday at the Battersea Arts Centre (it's just started a tour) and just loved it.  It's a magical, wonderful piece which made me personally feel both a child-like, innocent amazement and an appreciation of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's greater scope.  The most astonishing puppetry from a stellar quartet - the puppets were more human than some human actors I've seen.  I can really only rave about how wonderful I found it, and I'd advice anyone to see it - at least on a technical level you'll be impressed, but on a deeper, intellectual and emotional level it works completely.  A real treat.

I saw this in Salisbury this evening and thought it was utterly charming, and left me with a huge smile on my face.
