About the show

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.

Banal, Slow, Funny

See it if You have kids and don't care about watching the show

Don't see it if Your kids are almost adults

Delightful, Entertaining, Quirky

See it if You or your child are Elephant and Piggie book fans.

Don't see it if You are not.

"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 a...

"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-siz...

"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 El...
