Off-Broadway's THE BERENSTAIN BEARS LIVE! Recoups
Producer Matt Murphy announced that his family musical The Berenstain Bears LIVE! has recouped its initial investment following its 2nd Anniversary Off-Broadway in New York City. Having entertained nearly 20,000 boys, girls, parents, and grandparents, the musical's official second year anniversary performance featured a celebration on the Bear Country stage with Murphy and the cast. Murphy thanked the cast and creative team for their contributions over the past two years and added, "I am thrilled that the greater New York area has embraced our show and allowed us to continue on a weekend schedule that caters to families. Time and time again, we hear from parents who are so happy to have introduced their children to the wonderful world of theatre with characters they know and love from The Berenstain Bears books. As long as New Yorkers will have us, we will keep bringing the vibrant and colorful world of Bear Country that Stan and Jan Berenstain created more than 50 years ago to life through song and dance Off-Broadway."
Adapted from the children's book series by Stan and Jan Berenstain, The Berenstain Bears LIVE! is NYC's #1 musical for Mamas, Papas, and Young Cubs that will give boys and girls of all ages the chance to fall in love with these characters, just as their parents did when they were growing up. The Berenstain Bears LIVE! features an original score by Michael Borton and a book by Borton and Michael Slade. The Berenstain Bears LIVE! is produced by Matt Murphy Productions.
