This was a darling play, the performers were excellent and the length was just right for young kids. Willems fans will love the pigeon's unexpected appearances.

My 3 year old had a blast! It was great to have the cast members sign autographs for the kids.

Quotes & Highlights

“Anyone can relate to the trauma of a child losing a beloved stuffed animal, not to mention the resulting kerfuffle. That’s why Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical really works”—DC Theatre Scene
“The emotional high point of the show is ―Aggle Flaggle Klabble,‖ a tender ballad about loss, sung by Trixie, which stays true to the core conceit of the book – a preverbal toddler’s maddening inability to articulate to Dad that they have left her beloved bunny at the laundromat. The song is written entirely in babble. During the May 8 premiere at the Kennedy Center, it brought down the house.”—Publishers Weekly


If you’ve ever felt lost, then you’ll know just how Trixie’s favorite stuffed Knuffle Bunny feels when he’s left all alone. If you’ve ever felt loved, then you’ll know just how Trixie, Knuffle Bunny, and their family feel when they’re together. It sounds so simple, just a quick trip to the laundromat with Daddy, Trixie, and her beloved Knuffle Bunny. But, before you know it things go horribly, hilariously wrong! Chock full of adventure, song, and gigantic dancing laundry, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical tells a tale of firsts: a stuffed animal’s first trip in the laundry, a little girl’s first words, and a Daddy’s first time dealing with his child going “boneless."

Based on his beloved Caldecott Honor–winning picture book, six-time Emmy Award-winner Mo Willems joins Grammy Award®–winning composer Michael Silversher to lovingly celebrate the heart and heartache that can only come from a family visit to the local Laundromat. We mentioned the giant dancing laundry, right?
