Skirball Center for the Performing Arts - New York University

After a wildly popular New York City premiere last February right here on our stage, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical is back to charm your family with the story of a little girl, her daddy and her favorite stuffed animal.

“It is one of Mo Willems' many achievements to be, if not the first, then certainly the best author to present the dread heartbreak of the lost stuffed animal.” New York Times on Knuffle Bunny Free

A simple trip to the Laundromat turns into a heart-wrenching look at family dynamics, love, loss and parenting - all through catchy songs, delightful staging and a few charming surprises. Every child has his or her Knuffle Bunny, and every parent has dealt with a "boneless" moment, or two, or perhaps ten! Knuffle Bunny is sure to provide your family with a fun-filled day and make you want to revisit all your child’s favorite stories by Mo Willems.

Presented as part of the Big Red Chair Family Series.
Recommended for ages 3 and up.
