City of Hamburgers Comes to Life in the Big Apple

9781592993468Hamburgers and frankfurters will dance off the page and onto the stage this September when a group of New York artists adapts the children’s book City of Hamburgers into a puppet show for neighborhood children in Brooklyn. The free performance will debut Sept. 12 at a block party in Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn. Alphabet Arts, the nonprofit theater company creating the puppet show, hopes to tour the show to other local neighborhoods. City of Hamburgers is a collaboration between “Simpsons” writer Mike Reiss and illustrator Xeth Feinberg, co-creators of Showtime’s hit cartoon “Queer Duck.” The book recently received a bronze “Book of the Year” award from ForeWord magazine.
