The History of Toys Show

About This Show

Around the corner from one of the city’s most prestigious theaters lies a small, inauspicious playhouse where during every performance the audiences are on their feet and squealing with delight. And it happens at every show.

The Roulette Theatre, is just one of the virtual homes of the Toy Museum of NY, which comes to life during a presentation of “A History of Toys”, a magical and highly interactive play that allows kids to experience the joy of toy play while cleverly instructing them to respect their toys and those of other children.

Queen Marlene is the host and master of ceremonies. As founder and curator of the museum, she is the person with the most toys. And the person with the most toys gets to be Queen. After a short film featuring Mark E, Marbles, a hand puppet that coaches the kids to clap and laugh as loudly and vigorously as they can, the actual play begins.
