BEST ADVENTURE 

Shipwrecked! An Entertainment

Critics' Choice

The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougemont As Told By Himself engulfed us in the tall tales — and the published accounts — of a bona fide late-19th-century celebrity. The small, talented cast — Charles Fugate (as de Rougemont), Bob Linebarger and Jennie Greenberry — captivated us with yarns of 30 years' shipwrecked and, under the direction of Michael Grayman, brought the adventures to big, believable life. In the intimate space of the Paul Mesner Puppet Studio, we came to imagine a ship at sea, a giant octopus, typhoon winds, and a deserted Australian Outback. Were de Rougemont's colorful descriptions rugged truth or fanciful make-believe? Ultimately, there was a different exploration under way: that of the human mind. Donald Margulies' script then asked if this man believed his alternate reality. Thanks to this show's magic, we're left to wonder still.
