Separated from her family, young whooping crane Ajijaak undertakes her first migration from Canada to coastal Texas alone. Her journey is disrupted by environmental, industrial, and mythical chaos. Ajijaak must follow her intuition to fly onward, learning from the neo-indigenous communities she encounters along the way. Bringing community together through puppetry, traditional dances, projections, and kites, Ajijaak on Turtle Island will inspire the next generation of eco-champions.

From Jack Thorne, the Olivier Award-winning writer of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, comes a thrilling theatrical take on the world's most epic modern myth. Directed and choreographed by Olivier winner Drew McOnie, with an electrifying new score by Marius de Vries (La La Land) and Eddie Perfect (Strictly Ballroom the Musical), King Kong comes alive on Broadway through an innovative mix of robotics, puppetry, and stagecraft. Follow an ambitious young actor and a maverick filmmaker as they voyage from the bustling streets of 1930s New York to an uncharted island to capture the greatest wonder the world has ever seen. At the center of this 21st-century reimagining: a 2,000-pound, 20-story gorilla and the woman who risks everything to help him. Don't miss this exhilarating, emotional encounter with a legend that's always been too big to contain.
Symphonie Fantastique — the singularly inspired creation of designer, director, performer, and master puppeteer Basil Twist, set to the revolutionary 1830 score by composer Hector Berlioz — returns to New York City on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. Hailed as a creative masterpiece when it premiered, Symphonie Fantastique unfolds in the most unlikely of places — a 1,000 gallon water tank in which five unseen puppeteers swirl countless pieces of fabrics, feathers, fishing lures, flashlights, glitter, dyes, plastic, vinyl, and bubbles of all shapes and sizes, creating a dreamlike world of imagination and surreal storytelling. At the piano is Christopher O'Riley, who's been a soloist with such orchestras as the New York Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Chicago Symphony. He's also the host of NPR's From the Top, now in its 15th year.

This production also features Brown Bear, Brown Bear and 10 Little Rubber Ducks.
