A puppet show for adults

Warning: These puppets aren't kid-friendly.

"Henson Alternative: Stuffed and Unstrung," deemed a puppet show for adults, comes to the Irvine Barclay Theatre from Dec. 28 through Dec. 31.

No two performances are alike, according to a news release. Patrick Bristow hosts the show, and six puppeteers feed off the audience for fodder.


Tickets cost $38 to $45. No minors are allowed. A special New Year's Eve show will take place at 7 p.m. with a live telecast from New York's Times Square to countdown to midnight (East Coast time) with the Muppets.
