This children’s classic has lulled generations to sleep over 60 years and now this long poem of goodnight wishes is brought vibrantly to life on the LICM stage. Upbeat and charming songs, accompanied by a live pianist and innovative puppetry give life to the various objects in Bunny’s great green room. Watch as the red balloon floats around the room and the cow jumps over the moon. All members of the family will delight in seeing this beloved book come to life. “Goodnight Moon” is a joint production of LICM and Plaza Theatrical.
