The Jollyship puppet show set sail to a packed house at the new Someday Lounge Tuesday night. A fun, dark performance of pirate puppets at sea was the 5th in a sequence of a larger, on going epic. And it felt that way. It was like coming in on the tail end of a long joke. I was excited to see the group…a friend before the performance told me of seeing them before and how over the top raunchy their puppet shows were. I felt like this Jollyship was a bit on the tame side. I think my seat partner summed it up, “the more drinks in you, the better the performance was.” I missed their show at The Works, but I imagined that, with a more raucous crowd, the better the Jollyship sailed.
