“Bedazzling! Will mesmerize audiences!” - The New York Times

A timeless classic has made its way off the page and onto the stage.

This critically acclaimed production of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, created by Jonathan Rockefeller, features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets and faithfully adapts four stories by author/illustrator Eric Carle: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, 10 Little Rubber Ducks, The Very Lonely Firefly, and, the star of the show, The Very Hungry Caterpillar. This story has delighted generations of readers since it was first published in 1969, selling more than 43 million copies worldwide. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, now celebrating 50 years, has sold more than 16 million copies.

Eric’s well-known books captivated readers with his iconic colorful hand-painted tissue paper collage illustrations and distinctively simple stories, introducing generations of children to a bigger, brighter world—and to their first experiences of reading itself.
