The Very Hungry Caterpillar Returns to NYC!
The timeless classic makes its way off the page and onto the stage. THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR SHOW features a menagerie of 75 lovable puppets, faithfully adapting four of Eric Carle’s stories, BROWN BEAR, BROWN BEAR, 10 LITTLE RUBBER DUCKS, THE VERY LONELY FIREFLY and of course, THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by author/illustrator Eric Carle has delighted generations of readers since it was first published in 1969 selling more than 43 million copies worldwide.
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 experience of reading itself.
The critically acclaimed production is created by Jonathan Rockefeller and the team behind Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation, Paddington Gets in a Jam, and Sesame Street the Musical.
