"Some people are turning on their water faucets and getting flames," says Lisa Levinson. To put a stop to the fiery byproduct of all that damn fracking in Pennsylvania, Levinson, of arts organization Public Eye: Artists for Animals, is pairing her theater troupe with what seems like the polar opposite of flaming faucets: puppets. In Levinson's production of Not a Drop to Drink, energy developers approach a farmer about leasing his land. Though hesitant at first, he ultimately decides to go for it. But the animals ain't happy. "Some of the animals affected by the drilling come to him in his dreams," Levinson says. Of course, they're not the only ones with a stake in the farmer's plans: The four-leggeds' enemies are chemical puppets Frik and Frak and, according to Levinson, "they're up to no good."
