It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of musical theatre, but I also happen to be a life-long fan of Winnie the Pooh.
So, when I heard my favourite silly old bear was set to take the stage this fall off-Broadway, I jumped for joy!
As always, I wanted to share the information here:
Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their friends Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, and more are coming to the stage in a new off-Broadway musical featuring the classic Disney songs of the Sherman Brothers.
Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation is developed by family entertainment creator Jonathan Rockefeller, whose puppetry is on display in Paddington Gets in a Jam and The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show.
Featuring an all new story set in the Hundred Acre Wood, the show will be performed with life-size puppetry and will have songs from Disney's Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree and Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman, as well as songs by original creator A.A. Milne.
The run will take place at Theatre Row beginning October 21 and is presented in association with Disney Theatrical Productions.
You can find more information at https://winniethepoohshow.com/ , as well as purchase tickets and join their “Early Bear” mailing list to be the first to know about any new happenings in the Hundred Acre Wood!
I can’t wait to find out more about this exciting new show for a multitude of reasons, but Pooh is beloved by those of all ages, and I feel like after the year and a bit we’ve had, a little honey will go a long way.
