The Very Hungry Caterpillar: Some gentle quiet amid the madness

In between the excesses of last week's Out There performance at the Walker Art Center and the sugar-influenced madness of Cartooon at In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre, I stopped over at the Children's Theatre Company for something gentler, but still absolutely entertaining and beguiling.
Along with the title story, the less-than-an-hour show featured The Little Cloud and The Mixed-Up Chameleon . Carle's stories are simple, but contain not just good messages that everyone should listen to (use your imagination; be comfortable in your own skin) they also provide a solid platform for some delightful puppetry.
