“Rather like the great experiment that was the avant-garde theater in New York for the second half of the 20th century. “Behind the Lid” is an evocation not only of Ms. Nagrin but an entire theatrical subculture that now has only a flickering existence.”

–Ben Brantley, New York Times, Saturday, June 16, 2007

Behind the Lid premiered at the Silver Whale Gallery, NYC, May 29 – June 24, 2007. It was created by playwright/director Lee Nagrin & puppeteer/performer Basil Twist, and subsequently made into a documentary performance film by the director  Steve Lippman.
