About Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical

In Knuffle Bunny, a trip to the Laundromat takes a turn when “somebunny” is left behind in this musical that is full of adventure and gigantic dancing laundry.

How do you say “Knuffle Bunny”? We like to say it how Mo Willems says it.

Based on the beloved Caldecott Honor-winning picture book, Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical is filled with adventure, song and dancing laundry and an instant children’s classic! Six-time Emmy Award winner, Mo Willems, teams up with Grammy Award-winning composer, Michael Silversher, to create this heart-warming and hilarious musical.

The Story

Girl loves stuffed animal. Girl loses beloved animal. Girl fights to get animal back. Trixie, her father, and her favorite stuffed bunny set off on a trip to the Laundromat. The trip brings wonder, excitement and joy to the lively toddler until she realizes that she has left her Knuffle Bunny back at the laundromat. Trixie does everything in her power to make her father understand the emergency.

This brilliant, true-to-life tale is the epitome of children’s theatre, the story itself already proclaimed a “kid favorite.” Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical is the perfect show for a family-friendly outing. It returns to the Magik stage with Ariel Rosen, who portrayed Mom in the 2012 production, directing. “Knuffle Bunny is a show filled with so much adventure and heart, I’m so excited to be at the helm for its return to the Magik stage,” Ariel says. “Last time we produced it, I was actually a part of the cast! It’s a thrill to be on the other side of things, especially now that I’ve been the parent of a toddler just as precocious as Trixie.”
