Czechoslovak American Marionette Theatre mounted Faust, The Petrifying Puppet Comedye, its first manufacturing in 1990 at Jan Hus Sanctuary on New York’s Higher East Aspect (the outdated Czech neighborhood). In that early manufacturing, the traditional Faust story was staged by solely three performers (two of them émigrés from Prague, together with Vít) and a dozen vintage marionettes that have been discovered within the attic of the church. Thirty-two years, a thousand performances and a rising household of puppets later, the troupe is probably the most outstanding instance of the magic of Czech marionette puppetry within the US.

In 1997, the corporate carried out for the primary time at La MaMa, creating the acclaimed present GOLEM on the Ellen Stewart Theater, which was later offered by the 1998 Henson Worldwide Puppet Pageant. GOLEM has music by Frank London, 4-foot marionettes created by Jakub “Kuba” Krejci, a set by Roman Hladik, and a dozen performers. What adopted is an extended affiliation with La MaMa together with a number of reveals and premieres.

Czechoslovak American Marionette Theatre is a resident theater at La MaMa.
