Photographs and essays on the Bread and Puppet Theater. Black and white photographs by Ron Simon and writings by Ron Simon and Marc Estrin, with foreword by Grace Paley.
"I never thought a book could do justice to the magic, beauty, and power of the Bread and Puppet Theater- but Rehearsing with Gods does just that, with poetic, profound commentary by Marc Estrin, and magnificent photographs by Ronald Simon. The essays and images are all suffused with the loving spirit of Peter and Elka Schumann and their intrepid band of puppeteers." Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States.
Won the Foreword 2004 Book of the Year Award as best book in Theater/Performing Arts.
