The Czech Festival on 83rd Street looked like a glimpse into old Europe.
Here the children are waiting to be entertained by the puppet master
--a rather terrifyingly tall man in a coat of many colors.
I really find puppets rather disturbing in general. The only specific character I recognize here is Pinocchio. The doctor looks John Malkovich . I see a devil, a woodsman and a count.
(Also Harry Potter on the lower level.)
Cousins of Czech (and all sorts of other) heritage playing.
And Henry, looking rather pensive....
