If Tim & Eric Awesome Show has taught us anything useful, it's that puppets aren't just for kiddies. At the BusStop Theatre (2203 Gottingen), from March 27 to April 5 (Thursday to Saturday performances), Irondale Ensemble Project is presenting Grandma Noda's Tigers, a puppet story about a granny who loves her house, the tigers who live in it and her grandson who dreams of turning it into a stereo shop. Noda will love the new apartment, her grandson knows-—but the tigers, not so much. Shows start at 9pm with Saturday matinees at 2pm. Each 9pm performance is followed by live music, so you could go back each night. Thursday kicks off with Jeff Torbert, Fola on March 28, The Caravan on March 29, Live Animal on April 3, Cool dad on the 4th and on the final night, Ryan MacGrath & Harlow.
