Knuffle Bunny in the Press

DC Metro Theater Arts

"No one taps into the inner workings of a toddler’s mind like Mo Willems and this incarnation of Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical brings Willem’s book to magical life."

MD Theatre Guide

"This show is a lovely little piece of theatre that the young audience members will find engaging and the adults will find amusing. It is funny and touching and just plain sweet. It shows that even doing the laundry can turn into a great adventure."

DC Theatre Scene

"This is such a funny and unexpectedly moving musical, with the professional polish Adventure Theatre MTC is renowned for."

Our Kids

"I don't want to ruin it for you, but if you think that giant underpants are funny, you're going to love it as much as my daughter did."

Broadway World

"Based on Mo Willems series of books, the musical by Willems and composer Michael Silversher, the tune-filled adventure is beautifully crafted by director Nick Olcott. Mr. Olcott's spirited direction keeps the action moving and transitions seamlessly through Douglas Clarke's "Sesame Street" inspired set. "
