WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!
Shouldn't you be in Washington DC?
At like, the Kennedy Center?!
Because that's where the brand new, hot on the stage, first ever official Mo Willems musical is happening.
Yeah... sure there have been some small productions based around Mo's books.
Kinda like this one:
But but but... KNUFFLE BUNNY: A CAUTIONARY MUSICAL is the first with the script and lyrics actually written by Mo himself!

Oh, and you know Stephanie D'Abruzzo?
Perhaps you remember her as the voice of Lady Richington in Mo's Cartoon Network show Sheep In The Big City?
Or maybe you remember her from the hit Broadway Musical Avenue Q?
Well, if you'd get your butt to Washington DC... you'll remember her as playing the part of Trixie in the musical!
How cool is THAT?!
You can get all the info you need over HERE!

* Actually... I won't see you in the front row because I can't go. But tell me how all about it when you get back, okay?
