Join Dee for two very special performances this holiday season performing showtunes and Christmas songs like you’ve never heard them before!
Writer, actor, comic, producer and Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has taken on yet another surprising project in the entertainment industry: Puppet Shakespeare. The rocker has joined the team for the Puppet Shakespeare Players’ upcoming production, Puppet Romeo & Juliet, set to open at American Globe Theatre in January.
Snider was introduced to the Puppet Shakespeare Players through his son, Shane, who was cast as Guildenstern in Puppet Hamlet this past July. Described as “Shakespeare meets Avenue Q,” Puppet Hamlet combined the First Folio technique with comic characters, resulting in a production that remained faithful to Shakespeare’s language while giving the tragedy a modern comedic twist.

It was brought to the attention of the management today that Paul Ryan has been using our client Dee Snider's composition "We're Not Gonna Take It" in his political campaign to become the Vice President of The United States of America. Dee does not support Paul Ryan. Accordingly, Dee has released this statement to Benjy Sarlin, campaign reporter for TPM in Washington, DC:
I emphatically denounce Paul Ryan's use of my song "Were Not Gonna Take It" as recorded by my band Twisted Sister. There is almost nothing on which I agree with Paul Ryan, except perhaps the use of the P90X.
