CL's Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: A little girl called Wanda with a big imagination bonds with a hairy purple monster living in her closet and learns what friendship and acceptance is all about. Based on the popular children’s book by Eileen Spi- nelli, the 50 minute show is geared towards the four to nine age group and features music and lyrics by singer and guitarist Laurie Berkner, taking her first stab at writing a musical for kids. French-born Berkner is a Princeton grad who has collaborated with the likes of Ziggy Marley, Buckwheat Zydeco, and Danny Weinkauf of They Might Be Giants. Newsweek magazine says she writes “groovy, folksy tunes that appeal to the whole family” while the New York Times calls her “the Adele of the preschool crowd.” Off-campus attendees must show proof of vaccination. — KCM
