Brooklyn-based Puppetry Arts aims to help LGBT youth with theater project
BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn-based arts organization is putting the final touches on a theater project that examines bullying and suicide among LGBT youth.
Puppetry Arts held a table reading of the musical Anthropomorphic in Park Slope Thursday. The show uses performers in puppet masks to tell the story of a young man who takes his life and finds himself in purgatory.
Organizers say they hope to open a dialogue that will help LGBT teens with the issues they face.
