Paul Mesner Puppets Presents Martha Speaks at Center for Puppetry Arts

The Best-Selling Books Come to Life on Stage
Based on the best-selling “Martha” books by Susan Meddaugh, and produced by special arrangements with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and WGBH Educational Foundation, Center for Puppetry Arts invites audiences to see Martha jump off the pages onto the stage in Martha Speaks. Dog lovers and kids of all ages will be charmed by Paul Mesner Puppets’ rendition of the popular book and PBS animated series.

When the family feeds alphabet soup to their dog Martha, the letters go to her brain instead of her stomach, and Martha begins to speak. Having a talking dog is not as fun as it seems and the family starts to wish their verbose canine had a mute button.
