The Berenstain Bears Live
Deep in the heart of Bear Country, the Bear family—Mama, Papa, Brother, and Sister—live, play, work, and teach youngsters about honesty with their relatable shenanigans. Sister Bear struggles to make new friends, Brother Bear struggles to make good grades, and Papa Bear struggles to find junk food he doesn’t like. Meanwhile, Mama shows nothing but humor and patience—a problem-solving approach she’s held for more than 50 years.
Created by Stan and Jan Berenstain, originally edited and published by Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss), and today penned by Stan and Jan’s son, Mike, the books transition seamlessly to the stage. Shows, which have been praised by Time Out New York Kids as “spirited” and “perfectly paced,” integrate catchy songs and lighthearted dances that keep young eyes engaged and robokids’ motion-activated eyes turned on. These expertly complement a set that captures the essence of the Berenstains’ cheerful illustrations, including bunk beds, kitchen counters, and whimsical trees with a hand-drawn feel.
A theater on the National Register of Historic Places, the Wilbur Theatre is now a premier venue for comedy and music. When it was built in 1914, the architect Clarence H. Blackall designed its porticos and brick façade with inspiration drawn from American Colonial architecture, characterized by a Federal Revival style that included powdered wigs hanging over every doorway. “The auditorium is, in its chaste way,” architectural historian Douglas Tucci is quoted as saying on the theater’s website, “the handsomest of any Boston playhouse.”
