See it if you like puppets. These are beautiful handhelds so you can see the multitalented singing dancing puppeteers. Simple but suspenseful plot
Don't see it if you're bringing children over the age of 12. I sat near a pre-teen school group who whispered checked email & had little interest in show
See it if you enjoy a children's program about an extinct species. Nice costumes, puppets and songs. Talented cast.
Don't see it if you want a show for adults or very young children. The story is not easy for very young kids and is 80 minutes without intermission.
"Can Puppets Save the World From Extinction? Two new productions use everyday materials and artistic ingenuity to gently warn young audiences of the perils of climate change."
3/5 Stars. "Prehistoric characters deal with global warming, with the way that the actors adeptly meld their characterizations into the puppets the nicest seen this side of 'Avenue Q.'"
Score: 98% "Did I mention the live orchestra? It's just another piece of deliciousness in this wonderfully joyful production."
"Billed as a musical for kids about climate change [it] is also about puppets, paleontology and puberty…While there is no orange trilobite dismissing climate change as a hoax, there are more subtle references to 21st century politics….A modest entertainment that largely works."
