Through puppets and soaring music, this heartfelt and comic musical for families explores disability, kindness, and resilience. More…
As Uno, a child with autism, faces the challenge of competing in his school's math competition, his friends with varying disabilities—ADHD, vision, hearing, and physical impairment—rally in support. Told with 'Avenue Q'-style puppets and heartfelt songs, it's an inspiring journey about the values of kindness, differences, and big dreams. Individuals with disabilities are so unseen and unheard across media, especially children's media. 'Addy & Uno' is giving a voice to kids who are different, and inspiring a new generation of kinder people. Based on the Realabilities Educational Comic Book Curriculum.
"What the world needs now is love, sweet love – and now we’ve got 'Addy & Uno' to help spread the word about friendship, kindness, and how it’s definitely nice to be nice! As an added bonus, it also makes math fun...No matter how old you are, you’ll see a bit of yourself in these puppets and you’ll leave the theater with a fresh new sense of optimism...Your kids will love 'Addy and Uno' – and so will you – truly a show that came along exactly when it was needed most." Full Review
See it if you love puppets or if bullying, disabilities, and kindness are themes you want to expose your children too.
Don't see it if you need large production values win you over.
See it if you like to take your young child or grandchild to a show that will absorb them and which they will understand.
Don't see it if you don't like some characters that are one dimensional.
See it if You have children and want them to learn about the importance of accepting others and always being your best self. My family loved it.
Don't see it if Puppets and children's theater are not your thing.
See it if you want to see a great show for kids, where kids AND adults have a wonderful time, with a great message and wonderful voices
Don't see it if you're afraid of puppets. Yes, that's the only thing I have to say because this show is really amazing.
See it if you are in the mood for a fun show. If you have children great show for them with a great message. Catchy songs.
Don't see it if No reason not to. Even if you do not have children.
See it if you want to see a family musical geared to younger children under age 10 about relevant topics: bullying and children with disabilities.
Don't see it if you're not interested in puppet shows geared for children
See it if You have young children. It's about kids with disabilities, about being kind and accepting others who may be different. Great songs, actors.
Don't see it if you don't have a heart. Or if you have a tween who thinks she is too mature for the sweet story. I guess it's more appropriate for age 3-10.
See it if You want a wonderful show with a great message & teachable moments. Great for families and for young kids. Great young cast.
Don't see it if No reason not to see it if there are young kids in your life. Or just to support.
See it if you like kids' shows and want one with an amazing message about being accepting of others, told in an Avenue-Q style of puppetry.
Don't see it if you don't like kids' theater. This is NOT meant for adults, it is very much geared only for children.
See it if You like intelligent, serious drama that makes you think about real events of the past-mainly life in Russia under communism and Putin(ism).
Don't see it if You don’t have the attention span for length and shifts in time. The years move forward and past continuously. Requires focus and attention.
See it if Harry Clarke, one man show with Billy Crudup with clever story line leading the viewer through his life and loves in a riviting fashion.
Don't see it if You don't like one man, no set shows.
See it if You enjoy well-crafted children's theatre targeting issues like bullying and self-confidence when you might be different.
Don't see it if You want something edgy. You prefer children's theatre that feels crafted for adults as much as children (sorta Muppets vs Sesame Street)
See it if you're a fan of the comics, or want to see a sweet new children's puppet musical celebrating diversity and (dis)abilities. Fun and adorable!
Don't see it if you don't like puppets or don't have kids/aren't interested in a TYA musical.
See it if you're looking for kid's entertainment with depth but that is still fun and interactive with great music. Powerful message, gently done.
Don't see it if you don't have a child, you don't like puppets, or you don't want to shed a tear yourself. Very touching.
See it if You love puppets and/or you are taking young children.
Don't see it if You don't like puppet shows or you can't tolerate an overly simplified plot and message geared toward children.
See it if you have or are a child, and want to share in a nice message told in a bright, smart style that won't talk down to kids or bore parents.
Don't see it if you're not looking for family theater, or would be bothered by an audience of sometimes-outbursty small children.
See it if You want to bring the family to a musical about love, kindness and friendship
Don't see it if You want to see a big Broadway show like Lion King. Addy and Uno is an intimate show.
