Disney's Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation, which opened at Theatre Row in November 2021 for a limited run, will return Off-Broadway this summer. Created and directed by Jonathan Rockefeller, performances are scheduled for June 18-July 31 at the Hundred Acre Theatre at Theatre Row.
Inspired by the books by A. A. Milne and their Disney animated adaptations, the family-friendly show brings together Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their best friends Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, Owl (and Tigger, too!). Casting will be announced at a later date.
Accompanying the modern narrative is an original score from Nate Edmondson, which features some of the songs written for the animated feature from The Sherman Brothers, including "Winnie the Pooh," "The Blustery Day," "The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers," "Whoop-De-Dooper Bounce," and Milne's "The More It Snows."
The production also has a set design co-designed by Jack Golden and Joshua Warner, lighting design by Jamie Roderick, costume design by Lindsay McWilliams, original music and orchestrations by Nate Edmondson, and puppets built by Rockefeller Productions (lead builder Matthew Lish).
"We persevered through a difficult winter season and have continued to prioritize the safety of all our patrons. We are excited to bring the Hundred Acre Wood back to the city so that more families (young and old!) can safely join us during the summer months," said Rockefeller.
