    Thu Oct 8

    Two new shows presented by the New Victory Theater have taken center stage to wow young theatergoers. The Man Who Planted Trees (playing through this Sunday) at the Duke on 42nd Street tackles some heavy subject matter with the help of clever puppetry, and My House (playing through Sunday Oct 18) at the New 42nd Street Studios offers an introduction to theater for the under-three crowd. But do the shows deliver? Read our reviews (and check out their accompanying slide shows!) to find out.

    Thursday pick of the day: Edward Lear's Absurd-Ditties

    Thu Oct 8

    The mastermind behind The Cosmic Bicycle --a company that today presents Edward Lear's Absurd-Ditties --is Johnathan Edward Cross, a talented marionette-wielder and actor. This show is completely family-friendly (if a bit obscure): A puppet-operetta sets Lear's fantastical poems set to a score of accordion- and percussion-tinged tunes. Performers bring these works to life using toys, household objects, marionettes and more--all guided by the direction of Cross.
