No one articulates the child’s psyche like Maurice Sendak. With humor and empathy, he creates fantasy worlds in which the youngest children can safely explore their scariest, meanest, most imaginative thoughts and feelings. This production introduces new generations to his best classics, from the trilogy composed of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, IN THE NIGHT KITCHEN‚ and OUTSIDE OVER THERE to THE NUTSHELL LIBRARY, which teaches skills like the alphabet, counting, and the names of the seasons. Tammy Grimes brings these fantasy worlds alive for today’s preschoolers. Her portrayal of the irrepressible Rosie models the use of the imagination to banish boredom. Even parents will chuckle at the gentle lesson on caring taught by young Pierre. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
