Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye come to life on stage by melding of the work of an African American writer and an application of South African puppetry. Janni Younge, best known for her ground-breaking puppetry work in the Broadway and international productions of ‘War Horse.’ will co-direct the production. These approaches will underscore the myth and magical realism that is ingrained in the narrative as a path to unpacking the themes of race, class and gender that are the core of this work.”
