The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of Mr. Punch

Directed by Sean Cawelti produced by Rogue Artists Ensemble 

Adapted by Sean T. Cawelti and Miles Taber from the graphic novel by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean.

 "Rogue Artists Ensemble’s world premiere adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean’s graphic novel “The Tragical Comedy or Comical Tragedy of Mr. Punch” is an otherworldly phantasmagoria. Under Sean T. Cawelti’s protean direction, the show is a feast for the senses, but an ineffective lead actor and some vague character motivation keep the show from attaining its full emotional impact." VARIETY
