Taming ‘Calvin’s Monster’ at Boston Children’s Theatre
Like many a young lad being pursued, Calvin takes refuge in the public library. But librarian Mrs. Knowley won’t let him just hide in the stacks and play games on his iPhone. She introduces him to Peter Pan and other fairy-tale characters come to life. And in the end they help him see that the monster on his heels is really just… Well, suffice to say that the hero of the new family musical “Calvin’s Monster’’ has nothing to fear but fear itself. Boston Children’s Theatre executive artistic director Burgess Clark wrote the script and directs the production opening this weekend at the Boston Center for the Arts.
