A Brown Bear, A Moon, and A Caterpillar Recommended The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Mondays-Sundays. Continues through May 27 2012

An audience full of little kids took advantage of Chicago Children's Theatre's thoughtful "no shushing" policy at the matinee I attended, eagerly (and to my surprise, accurately) predicting aloud which of Eric Carle's colorful characters would pop up next—and gasping when it did. CCT's guest ensemble, Mermaid Theater of Nova Scotia, has faithfully adapted three of Carle's picture books—including the iconic The Very Hungry Caterpillar—in a visually captivating way that speaks directly to very young audiences. Original music by Steven Naylor and imaginative puppet and production design by director Jim Morrow capture Carle's serene sense of wonder. —Dan Jakes
