    The Story of Crow Boy explores the difficult life yet compassionate vision of artist Taro Yashima. Yashima was imprisoned and tortured in the militarized fervor of Japan just prior to WWII and then faced discrimination in the USA as a Japanese émigré. Somehow despite such human brutality, he developed an ongoing faith in the sanctity of all peoples. This production draws on his autobiographical and fictional books including the Caldecott Award-winning CROW BOY (1955) about a young boy who learns to sing the “voices of crows” in defiance of his years of being bullied.

    Created by Masanari Kawahara, Sandy Spieler, Steven Epp and Momoko Tanno.

    This is the first appearance of the famed Heart of the Beast Puppet Theatre at the Paramount!
