Created by Stan and Jan Berenstain in the 1970s, The Berenstain Bears have become a beloved staple of children's literature, both entertaining and educating kids with valuable lessons and colorful pictures. Combining three of the series' most popular stories, The Berenstain Bears LIVE! weaves together a trifecta of plotlines that stress the importance of being honest with one's family. After the doctor tells the family members they need to cut back on junk food, Papa Bear still goes on a secretive binge and eats fatty snacks from his toolbox stash; Brother Bear's distractedness about losing a soccer record leads him to fail a quiz, which he tries to hide from his parents; and Sister Bear sneaks a frog into the house after overreacting to a lecture about the dangers of the outside world.
Praised by Time Out New York Kids as "perfectly paced," the show seamlessly integrates catchy songs and lighthearted dances that keep young eyes engaged and robokids' motion-activated eyes turned on. Very Important Bear–holding patrons catch the show from the Grassy Knoll at the front of the theater, kicking back in folding chairs or nestling into soft green-shag carpeting. A post-show meet and greet gives kids the chance to decorate their faces with ursine noses and take pictures with the cast.
