New Victory Theater presents Kennedy Center Theater for Young Audiences' musical adaptation of Mo Willems' best-selling picture book series about Elephant and Piggie, two very different BFFs. More…
Elephant Gerald is a careful, formally attired worrywart. Piggie is a perky, smiley bundle of fun. Total opposites? Yes, but best friends just the same! The two sing and dance their way through plenty of pachydermal peril and swiney suspense, facing fundamental questions like: What do you wear to a fancy costume pool party? Should you share your ice cream? And how can two friends play with one toy? Best for ages 4 to 7.
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
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
