This page-to-stage hit returns to NYC for an encore run featuring puppet adaptations of four stories by children's author/illustrator Eric Carle. More…
Eric Carle's well-known picture books captivate young readers with their hand-painted, tissue-paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories. Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, this hour-long family show is a faithful adaptation of four of his most beloved tales: "Brown Bear, Brown Bear," "10 Little Rubber Ducks," "The Very Lonely Firefly," and "The Very Hungry Caterpillar."
See it if You enjoy shows with puppetry. You have young children who aren't ready for a Broadway show. You like all-ages shows.
Don't see it if You don't like puppets. You don't want a show that while can be seen by all ages, is aimed at a very young audience.
See it if you have young children or grandchildren. Great way to introduce them to live theater. Buy them the Eric Carle book and have fun.

See it if My real reviewers: Good for 2-6yrs old, I'd say. Reminds you of why you like theatre. Simple, effective, staging. Exciting puppets for kids.
Don't see it if Maybe "scary" puppets. Only an hour, but 1 story made aud. a little restless. They loved the classic Caterpillar tale, had their lines down.
