Broadway puppeteer returns to Rochester for show at Blackfriars

Rick Lyon (center) is back home in Rochester for an event tomorrow night at Blackfriars Theatre. He's also working with the cast of Avenue Q, which runs next month at Blackfriars.

You might recognize Rick Lyon's work from Broadway or from his time with Jim Henson and The Muppets.

The Rochester native is back home, working with the cast of Avenue Q at Blackfriars Theatre. The show runs May 11-27.

But before that production takes the stage, Blackfriars Theatre is hosting An Evening with Rick Lyon. The community event is happening tomorrow from 7-9 p.m. Lyon will share stories and laughs from his unique journey from Rochester to New York City, along with, of course, puppets.

He shared part of that story with us this morning on Good Day Rochester.
