Featuring songs by the Sherman Brothers’ and by A.A. Milne, this beautifully crafted musical stage adaptation is set deep in the Hundred Acre Wood and told with stunning life-size puppetry through the eyes of the Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their best friends Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl (and Tigger too!).

“Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Adaptation” is developed and presented by renowned family entertainment creator Jonathan Rockefeller (whose spectacular puppetry is omnipresent in the acclaimed productions of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show” and “Paddington Gets in a Jam”). Performances will take place at Times Square’s Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street) beginning October 21, 2021.

Jonathan Rockefeller and Rockefeller Productions embraced the challenge of re-imaging Disney’s Winnie the Pooh for a new audience by bringing it to life on stage in puppet form. The company has garnered global accolades, from critics and audiences alike, for their production of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show,” with 14 productions playing on 4 continents. An extended run of the show in New York City culminated in Drama Desk and Off-Broadway Alliance nominations, as did their production of “Paddington Gets in a Jam,” which tours China and the US later this year. Other projects include “Elmer the Patchwork Elephant,” which plays on three continents, “Mr. Men and Little Miss Show” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the award-winning short film, “10 Little Rubber Ducks,” written by preeminent author/illustrator Eric Carle.

I get nervous when I hear the word “re-imagined”. Please don’t screw the characters up.
