German-born sculptor and artistic director Peter Schumann first conceived of the Bread & Puppet Theater when he moved to New York City in the early '60s. Schumann first came to national attention in 1965 with Fire, an original production depicting the aftermath of a bombing raid on a Vietnamese village and performed with life-sized puppets. Schumann now calls Vermont home and doesn't tour as often these days. In fact, the Bread & Puppet Theater is making its first trip to the West Coast in 14 years when it performs Fire and serves fresh-baked bread on Wednesday, Oct. 7, at Sebastopol Grange Hall, 6000 Sebastopol Ave., Sebastopol. 7pm. $20.
