Just like the other bonded animals at New York’s Central Park Zoo, these two male penguins walk, play, swim, and dance together. When the duo try to hatch a rock, the zookeeper gives them an egg instead, and they find themselves on an adventure raising a chick for real. Penguins is a unique and engaging show about love and the ever-evolving meaning of family. Inspired by the true story reported by the New York Times that touched hearts world-wide, this new, non-verbal theater and dance production comes to life with delightful music and incredible movement and choreography.
