PADDINGTON GETS IN A JAM Will Celebrate its 100th Performance

PADDINGTON GETS IN A JAM Will Celebrate its 100th Performance

Jonathan Rockefeller's Paddington Gets in a Jam will celebrate its 100th performance on Sunday, February 23, 2020 (2 PM) at Union Square's DR2 Theatre. Paddington Gets in a Jam began its limited Off-Broadway run on December 13, 2019.

The hit family show will end its New York run, as planned, on March 8 and will head to Toronto's Lower Ossington Theatre, ahead of its Canadian tour. Paddington Gets in a Jam will also be launching its National Tour beginning this September (dates and venues TBA) for tickets to the current run and more information on the tour visit,

In Jonathan Rockefeller's Paddington Gets in a Jam, Paddington goes next door to borrow a cup of sugar from his neighbor Mr. Curry, who is in a panic because he's expecting a visit from his Great Aunt Matilda. And so, Paddington volunteers to help Mr. Curry with his to-do list before her imminent arrival.

Throughout the afternoon, Paddington attempts items on the list - repair the pipes in the bathroom, vacuum the floors, install new wallpaper, bake a cake.... But in typical Paddington fashion, nothing goes to plan. The pipes burst and flood the bathroom. The vacuum cleaner misbehaves and leaves dust everywhere. Paddington adds too much self-rising flour to the cake and his efforts at wallpapering turn into catastrophic (and sticky) chaos!

Will Paddington be able to fix everything before Great Aunt Matilda arrives?
