Tony, "BOND" os a PLAY not a movie, about local soldier, Logan Black, and his dog. Now at the Unicorn Theatre. tarring the actual soldier who lived it, and now that his dog has died, there's a remarkable puppet that plays the dog.

Like the amazing Julie Taymor Broadway PLAY, The Lion King, the Unicorn had the great Paul Mesner puppet theatre construct a puppet. And due to what's called in the brain, "suspension of disbelief", one soon forgets about the puppet master.

Hooray for the Unicorn and their participation in the New Play Network. And for Logan Black, who enterprised this first at the much derided Fringe Festival. But that is where new work gets tested.
