The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show Coming to N.Y.

By Dianna Dilworth 

Rockefeller Productions is hosting a special performance of its upcoming new puppet show adaptation of Eric Carle’s children’s books as a benefit.

The event, which will take place on Feb. 19 at the 47 Street Theatre at 11 a.m. in New York, will benefit the art and literacy programs at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Massachusetts. The tickets for the benefit cost $75, and include a gift bag, as well as a meeting with a puppet.

The show is based on four of Eric Carle’s stories including: The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse; Mister Seahorse; The Very Lonely Firefly; and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

It premiered in January 2015 in Sydney, Australia and is on continuous tour through 2017 in Australia and New Zealand. The show opens in New York on Jan. 30.
