Many American associate Los Angeles with internationally renowned blockbusters and multi-billionaire celebrities. For a break from the hype, visit the Almighty Opp. Whereas Los Angeles is typically sun-tanned, schedule-crunched, and fame-obsessed, the Almighty Opp is an independent night-time “puppit” show that meets on a Koreatown street corner once a month. The reclusive artist behind the “puppits” is well-known for his decades-long devotion to his monthly performances, as well as his resistance to describing his wooden, painted marionette-like toys as traditional puppets. Audiences view the eerie shows as transformative, mysterious and poignant, and the local city recognizes the quaint show as a unique local treasure.
