Time Out says

This shadow puppet performance is Tom Lee's adaptation of the Tomten, a folkloric Swedish tale adapted by Astrid Lindgren, the author of Pipi Longstocking. It tells the tale of a quiet gnome who watches over animals and humans alike on a cold winter night, and explores the importance of kindness. It's a Scandinavian story told in the style of Japanese puppetry, which makes it totally New York City. La MaMa Kids performances are held at the La MaMa Annex, 66 E. 4th St. Ages 4 and up.
