>John Tartaglia

A Sesame Street puppeteer at 16, Tartaglia, now 29, grew up to star with puppets onstage (Avenue Q) and on Disney Channel's Johnny and the Sprites, about a guy befriending magical creatures.

PUPPET MASTER When I was 16, I wrote down this idea about woodland creatures. It's amazing to think of something at that age and have it happen as a show.
