During the first boss with the actors, anything the actors did was spelled wrong or with random caps.

Was that a bug or intended?

Once you finish phase one of the fight it becomes pretty dang obvious that it's intended.

Not really. Just because it was the stage fight, doesn't mean that they should be messed up words. After I finished it I thought oh okay. But still didn't understand.

i thought that was a weird thing as well. I get it's suppose to be corrupted forms of their names but I don't really get the point. You're clearly in a dream sequence, but I don't think weird typos really accomplishes that.

The whole sequence feels bizarre and unsettling. The weird attack names, the non-aggressive enemy behaviour, the fact you're suddenly fighting on the stage instead of the balcony, all of this combines to give the player a sense of unease and that something is very wrong in this boss fight. Then you get to the end and it's revealed that the fight was part of the "play" going on in the background, which... doesn't really make too much sense, but thematically it fits well.

You were fighting against literal wooden marionettes come to life; the weird grammar and spelling of their attacks was to emphasize that they're not natural or even truly alive.
