With Another Snowy Day, Will Bishop and Chicago Children's Theatre have crafted a winter puppet show extravaganza that's dazzling, brisk at under an hour, and sweet as can be. It's based on three of Beatrix Potter's animal stories, handsomely woven together by three actors who can do it all: They animate Peter Rabbit and his companions (one a ginormous fish) with beauty and dexterity. And they provide musical accompaniment on many instruments and sing in harmony. With their help, the beloved tales are brought to life with such joy that the finely realized puppets (designed by Grace Needlman) genuinely seem to laugh, cry, and speak. This is excellent children's theater. If you have babies, you should take them—they'll love it. If you are a baby, I'm very impressed with your reading skills and you should go: you'll love it. If you don't have babies, go make some! They'll love it! —Max Maller
