The dynamic, knowledge-seeking characters from the PBS hit TV show burst from the screen and onto the stage during Super Why. The interactive show features beloved characters such as Alpha Pig, Wonder Red, and Woofster the puppy as they set out on adventures in reading against a backdrop of dazzling multimedia. Aerial stunts, choreographed dances, and tunes such as "Fairytale Friends" envelop preschool audience members in a thrilling, exploratory world of learning that's much more fun than getting locked in a library overnight.
Several decades of disparate architectural styles stand at the corner of 69th and Ludlow: an old-fashioned radio tower atop the Doric columns of a faux-classical cupola atop a streamlined marquee that broadcasts the year the Tower Theatre opened as a music venue: 1972. That's when it began helping introduce the world to such acts as David Bowie, Genesis, and Bruce Springsteen. Inside, red lights glow over an auditorium done up in the 1920s style of the movie palace that originally filled the venue, with marble pillars, Italianate archways, and an enormous light fixture that resembles an old film reel from the days before movies were beamed from computers into audiences' brains.
