In The Hans Christian Andersen Storybook, currently playing at Simpich Showcase (2413 W. Colorado Ave., simpich.com), the Ugly Duckling, a fidgety bundle of marabou feathers and strings, finds himself talking to his story's creator, and asks what's up with his name when confronted with the title of his tale. "I'm just a little overcooked, that's all," the duckling wails. "I didn't write this! I don't even know what ugly is!" Andersen, played by puppeteer and playwright David Simpich, tries to answer the duckling, and eventually does so with the help of six other fairy tales and their characters. Written in 1994 out of reverence for Andersen and his lasting stories, Simpich's revival is suitable for kids 6 and up and plays today at 2:30; it closes June 12. Tickets are $12. — Edie Adelstein
