"You'll see some terrific dancing and hear charming, fun songs. You'll discover some new adventures and complications from this beloved Bear Family who always stick together. Without being preachy, the show offers life lessons that can be easily digested by youngsters."

"Although it's done on the cheap (the music is canned, the backdrop is cardboard), the production has a lot of spirit. The biggest kick parents will get out of the show is watching their kids have fun, but that's really the point of going, isn't it? After the performance, kids are invited to get their faces painted as bears, dance around and pose for photos with the cast."

"Mama, Papa, Brother and Sister Bear make the leap from picture book to performance space in a spirited show that is short in length but generous in content. Packed into a mere 55 minutes, the perfectly paced production draws upon its rich storybook history by applying familiar life lessons to a day in the life of the Berenstains."

"Just like the classic stories, the musical brought about an entertaining and informative lesson on living the good life—ursine or otherwise. The show is a perfect introduction to the realm of musicals for your little ones. It was long enough to entertain, but not too long for jumpiness to ensue. It’ll be great for your little one."

"The show is filled with cute original music and the actors have a great energy that kept our two five year olds engaged throughout. Kids are invited for photos with the cast after the show and were able to get bear noses painted on their face."

"Last weekend, we were able to watch these wonderful bears live, in action, in a delightful off-Broadway show, and now my daughter—as well as myself—are bigger fans than ever. The Berenstain Bears LIVE! is at once entertaining and educational, and kept my four-year-old and her five-year-old friend riveted for the duration of the well-paced 55-minute show."

"Our family just saw the show in previews and loved every minute of it. This kids show weaves 3 of our favorite books (The Berenstain Bears Learn About Strangers, The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Junk Food, and The Berenstain Bears’ Trouble at School) to make the show engaging, silly, and teach some memorable lessons to the kids, as the books do in such a classic and timeless way."
