Phoenix puppeteer Stacey Gordon doesn't need directions to get to Sesame Street. The woman behind Grand Avenue's Puppet Pie studio has been there and back, playing the long-running PBS show's newest character Julia, a red-haired, green-eyed girl with autism. First appearing on the show's digital platform, Julia made her debut on the children's TV show in April 2017. And rumor has it Gordon will shoot several more episodes, which will air on the show's new network, HBO. No need to worry, though. Gordon's still based in Phoenix, and teaching puppet-making workshops when she isn't creating new creatures or performing improv.
