Tribute to the Twilight Zone
This past fall, Dan Jones ’12 returned to campus to put on a show featuring a puppet. But this wasn’t a children’s show. It was an adaptation of Jerome Bixby’s classic short story “It’s a Good Life,” which was the basis for a Twilight Zone episode.
The performance was done as an Ithaca counterpart to the Rod Serling Conference, which was held in Los Angeles for the first time in its seven-year history.
Jones, an accomplished puppeteer whose credits include Big Fish on Broadway, put a new spin on the Serling-style storytelling by incorporating puppetry into the live performance. The puppetry lead was theatre studies alumna Eva “Chava” Curland ’11.
