Entertaining, Funny, Slow, Kid-friendly, Cute

See it if you have kids who love the Elephant & Piggie books specifically, or Mo Willems's books generally.

Don't see it if you are not taking a child to the show. The joy is really in seeing kids react to the play. There are some parts which adults will find slow Read more

Family friendly, Sweet, Delightful

See it if if you love the Elephant & Piggie books, or a fan of Mo Willems, & have kids under age 10, this play is delightful. Saw it on a school trip

Don't see it if if you don't have small kids, I'd skip this. Some theatre for young audience shows are fine for adults, this is really for kids 10 and under

BroadwayWorld

"Brought to life by an upbeat and wildly catchy score by Deborah Wicks La Puma and talented actors who have enough energy and pizzazz in their step to make an entire theater of children immensely happy...Willems really knows how to turn a simple idea of two friends who can embark on any sort of adventure they wish into something riveting, infectiously fun and even educational, all while making everyone in the theater thrilled that they decided to see the show."

"Their young audiences could not be happier...There are life lessons about friendship, caring and respect — even stepping outside your comfort zone. Best of all, from the audience’s point of view, they get a chance to join in the fun. The show is unabashedly sweet and packs punch for its pint-sized theatergoers."

"It was fun to watch a beloved series come to life! The Elephant and Piggy characters, played by Evan Casey and Lauren Williams respectively, are absolutely endearing...They bring the characters to life through cabaret-style songs and witty jokes that even the parents will chuckle at."

"The show captures the delightful relationship between the somewhat neurotic pachyderm and his optimistic porker pal in bold and brilliant style…What is perhaps most remarkable about these performances is the actors’ understanding of characters that exist in a picture book. This is exactly how Elephant and Piggie would be if they suddenly came to life. Every child (and grownup) in the audience is completely pulled in."

"Backed by nutty backup singers The Squirrelles, Elephant and Piggie will have you giggling out loud in this romp of a musical! The show was absolutely unforgettable. The actors did a great job bringing the characters to life on the stage as well as making it fun and lively for the audience! This show is a must for 'Elephant & Piggie' lovers of all ages."
