About the show

0h 50m | Already closed | The New Victory Theater (Midtown W)

Based on a Caldecott Medal-winning book, the New Victory's solo puppetry performance for very young children is about one creature of habit and his kindhearted coterie. More…

Every day, Morris McGee takes the No. 5 bus to his job at the zoo. Every day, he lovingly attends to the elephant, the tortoise, the penguin, the owl and the rhinoceros (who always has a runny nose). Every day, that is, until it's Morris who has the sniffles! Best for children ages 2 to 5.

Stage Buddy

“The interaction between the narrator’s voice and the puppeteer are delightful and humorous...Although the cut-out stencil puppets were lovely, they were not very large or elaborate and had limited movement capabilities...Did not seem to go beyond simply lengthening the story...Much of the charm that is prevalent in the book is not recreated in this show...Still, for the children who love the book, seeing it come to life in puppet form will certainly be a treat.” Full Review

Enchanting, Great acting, Quirky, Slow, Great staging

See it if you have little kids (2-5yo)

Don't see it if your kids are older. while charming, the show is too slow for older kids and adults.
