Shackled by restraints of reality, Frida finds herself unable to paint. In a moment of desperation, she rediscovers her life source — the other Frida.
A performance art piece that explores the idea of finding an independent voice and freedom through female lineage and relationships.
Gruff! takes place in a world that goats have transformed into a toxic junkyard. A young goat named Gruf discovers the magically hidden Troll Valley - the only surviving oasis of natural plant and animal life left on Earth. Gruf eagerly tries to convince her fellow goats to join her on a quest to make the world green again, but her elders are bent on drilling for fuel in Troll Valley. The fate of the world hangs in the balance!

When two puppets adopt a human child, they must deal with the fallout when the boy begins to grow strings. The boy's overzealous (and human) teacher steps in to teach him how to be "normal," igniting a political firestorm that threatens to engulf the entire community.
Symphonie Fantastique — the singularly inspired creation of designer, director, performer, and master puppeteer Basil Twist, set to the revolutionary 1830 score by composer Hector Berlioz — returns to New York City on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. Hailed as a creative masterpiece when it premiered, Symphonie Fantastique unfolds in the most unlikely of places — a 1,000 gallon water tank in which five unseen puppeteers swirl countless pieces of fabrics, feathers, fishing lures, flashlights, glitter, dyes, plastic, vinyl, and bubbles of all shapes and sizes, creating a dreamlike world of imagination and surreal storytelling. At the piano is Christopher O'Riley, who's been a soloist with such orchestras as the New York Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Chicago Symphony. He's also the host of NPR's From the Top, now in its 15th year.
Created by Jonathan Rockefeller, the critically acclaimed The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets and faithfully adapts four of Eric Carle's stories: The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Mister Seahorse, The Very Lonely Firefly, and of course, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This production also features Brown Bear, Brown Bear and 10 Little Rubber Ducks.
