I have never seen a Performance by Bread & Puppet in Glover, but in other locations. The troupe does amazing work and if you ever have an opportunity to see them, GO! However, if you ever venture to the North East Kingdom of Vermont, you must take some time and visit the museum. And do it in the summertime. It... More

Bread and Puppet theater puts on summer shows that are funny, creative and very concerned with progressive issues. They have an old world feel as well, with brass band, and strange characters. They also have an amazing museum of much of their former work, that is always worth seeing, as it is a testament to their longevity, political awareness, and... More

My girlfriend and I learned about Bread and Puppet in high school, so we had to go see it for ourselves. It is absolutely amazing to experience. The people are so friendly and outgoing - it really is a welcoming atmosphere. They typically hold two performances in the Summer every weekend. The first is in the Dirt Floor Cathedral (indoors),...

We had been told that the theatre was current political theatre and that the puppets were amazing. We went through the museum. It was interesting but here wasn't enough text for us to follow it. There seems to be very little environmental or us political theatre. I think we were expecting a bit more comedy and current political and perhaps... More

I just spent the most fantastic Sunday afternoon here. First a visit to the museum to see the extraordinary and fantastical gigantic puppets from past shows. Then bought lots of beautiful screen printed posters for next to nothing. Then walked over the road to the show site. From 2pm there are mini live performances until 3pm when the circus starts...

A fasinating perspective, but definitely weird. The museum is run by volunteers and not regularly staffed. You just let yourself in and turn on the lights. Its a quick stop when you need something extra to do. I wasn't there for a show but i'm sure they are worth it

Very interesting, kind of creepy, but definitely worth seeing the art and learning the history behind it.
