Nickelodeon brought this lovable little puppy to millions of children through the television. Now she can be seen in person, or rather in animal, at Radio City Music Hall as Blue's Clues Live! plays through April 29. The show began April 20.
All of your favorite characters from the "Blue's Clues" television show, including Blue, Mail Box, Slippery Soap, Tickety Tock, Mr. Salt, Mrs. Pepper, Paprika and, of course, the green-striped-shirt-clad Steve will appear on stage. The show follows Blue and Steve as they journey through classic fairytales and even outer space.
The show is created by Angela C. Santomero and Gip Hoppe. Sets are designed by David Gallo, costumes by Gregg Barnes and puppets are brought to life by Yvette Helin. The original score of Blue's Clues Live! is the work of Mike Rubin and Nick Balaban.
The show is aimed at preschool children, approximately between the ages of 2 and 7 and their parents (and grandparents). The actor playing Steve in the stage production is Thomas Mizer. (Steve Burns plays the television version of his namesake.) The show consists of two 30-minute acts with a 20-minute intermission between.
