Cultural Thai puppet show Sep 23, 2011
Why not combine shopping, dinner or a lazy afternoon lying down in Lumpini park with an original Thai puppet show? Joe Louis Theatre is conveniently located near Silom Complex with loads of little stores and the park. In the evening the night market and the restaurants behind the park are crowded. It's then that the Joe Louis puppets come to live. Folk tales are told through the classic art of puppetry. This art is almost extinct in Thailand! Puppeteers control the legs, arms and head of each puppet. Dressed in black, they blend into the background while the colorful puppets come to life. Both the puppets and puppeteers dance along with the music. We were amazed that we were sucked in the show right from the start. The small theatre, the Thai interior, the music & light show is amazing. After the performance we had a drink at one of the bars outside. At this time it gets crowded; the night market is well under way and the restaurants are open. We take a stroll on the night market. Not so cheap as Chatuchak, but this one is open every night.

Buy your theatre tickets at the door for 600 Baht. The ticket office is open from the afternoon until the end of the evening. Have a good time with Joe Louis puppeteers and puppets who have won international awards for their skills and shows.
