The Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry at the University of Connecticut recently hosted this extended online chat with famed puppeteer Martin P. Robinson, who is best known for his work on Sesame Street as Telly Monster and Mr. Snuffleupagus and as the original designer and puppeteer of Audrey II in the stage musical Little Shop of Horrors. Martin spoke with the Ballard Institute’s John Bell and UConn Puppet Arts Program graduate students Robert Ian Cutler and K. William Smith about designing and building puppets for stage, as well as Cutler and Smith’s own work creating a new version of Audrey II for a regional theatre production of Little Shop, which had to be cancelled due to COVID-19.

The Ballard Institute is making all of its current programming available for free online during the Coronavirus epidemic. For more information or to watch more of their online events visit bimp.uconn.edu and subscribe to their YouTube Channel.
