"... With exuberance and at times wicked humor, The Blue Bird achieves something irresistible: an adventure that is genuinely fun to embark on. It deals with death, grief, poverty, alienation, and fear, but it is never gloomy or self-conscious. The other half of the success comes from the renowned Russian avant-garde artist Andrey Bartenev's scenic and costume design. By marrying high-tech with high art, the familiar tale emanates as something strikingly new. " nytheatre.com

The New York Times says the show does a "lovely job at evoking magical worlds and characters," while Backstage praised Andrey Bartenev's "spectacularly original" costumes and Alex Koch's "fanciful projections that include movement, such as a blue bird that flies around the room."

In this new play based on the early 20th-century classic by symbolist Maurice Maeterlinck, a mysterious visitor on Christmas Eve leads Martha, a materialistic city girl, on a fantastical journey. Armed with a magic hat that reveals the "true nature" of things, Martha finds the “blue bird of happiness”.

Children and adults are welcome! (ages 5 and over) Special Family Pack available: 4 tickets or more for $25; general admission: $30
