...went to see Three, a puppet show at the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater in Central Park. The show was a mixed-up version of the the classic fairy tales “The Three Little Pigs,” “Three Billy Goats Gruff,” and “The Three Bears".
In this story, the central character, the “Big Bad Wolf,” is given a mission by the “Three Blind Fairy God Mice” to travel into these stories to go from the big bad villain to the “Big Good Wolf.” In his first go-around at redemption the Big Bad Wolf fails miserably, however, with guidance from the Fairy God Mice and the audience, the Big Bad Wolf finally redeems himself and is granted permission to rejoin the beloved fables as the Big Good Wolf.
It was a perfect way to spend a rainy morning. After initially being a little nervous (I have no idea why...the child has been to about a dozen performances in theaters!) she warmed up enough to huff and puff with the wolf and to get up in the aisle to dance and try out some wolf karate!
