Gepetto had a tough task, but as beleaguered toymakers go, none is more put-upon than Sylvester Cloud, the hero of Yip Harburg’s peculiar musical. Cloud only wants to make enough to marry his fiancée, but finds himself forced to contend with genies, unsavory bigwigs, and McCarthyism. Keith Lee Grant pulls the strings on a puppet revival.
