Hopefully this isn’t a spoiler, but there aren’t any vagina puppets in Happy Vagina Puppet Show by Dangerous Productions. The closest thing that comes to a puppet, and what happens to also be the star of the show, is a silver, inchworm-like tube, which you’ll really just have to see to believe.
The show is formatted in a series of vignettes, about three to four minutes long, and while each one is about the female anatomy, there’s nothing inaccessible about the performances. “Hymen Ballet” features a group of pink-tutu-clad dancers (male and female) who represent the hymen as it breaks, “Hot Talk” shows a couple in bed talking dirty to each other (or at least trying to), and “Bieber Baby Birth” reenacts the phases of conception and birth to the tune of Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”
I went to Happy Vagina Puppet Show because I was slightly intrigued and mostly because it worked with my Fringe schedule, but I’m sure glad it worked out that way. This is one of the shows that you hope to find at the Fringe—funny, clever, entertaining, and totally weird.
Side note: The show description says “Come one, come all,” but I wouldn’t recommend bringing your kids, unless you want to answer a lot of questions.
