Celebrated author Mo Willems' beloved characters come to life in a jazzy musical based on the award-winning, best-selling children’s books. After fumbling and breaking their new toy, bestus friends Gerald and Piggie realize they are in a play and use their powers of persuasion to move the audience. The vaudevillian-style show will have families saying “banana”, “flippy floppy floory”, and clapping along.
Themes: Friendship, sharing
