You have to admire any anti-Bush political theater that comes out of Texas. Small Appliance Puppet Theater is based in Austin, Texas and “is dedicated to shining the light of truth on today’s political leaders – while creating an opportunity to laugh.” Puppet Government dares to ask: If President George W. Bush was an appliance, what would he be? The Appliance-in-Chief and his friends sing and dance in musical numbers, deliver bizarre press conferences, and start an exciting war. Puppet Government is written by Steve Barney and directed by Chris Humphrey who also composed and arranged the music, and designed the puppets.
