A Pooh-py Discovery

Well... this really stinks.  Earlier today, I found out that the event I was really looking forward to going to in April was cancelled.  I literally went online to purchase our tickets, and I couldn't.  It took me a few minutes of research to discover that the entire second half of the US tour was cancelled without any reason.

This is really Pooh-py.  Yes, the "traveling Broadway show" that I referred to in my Upcoming Adventures post was the Winnie the Pooh musical stage adaptation. 

I found out about it a few months ago when I was scrolling through Instagram.  I don't do that as often as I used to, so it was lucky that I even found out about it.  When I first saw it, the show was still in New York.  Eliot and I tried everything in our power to get down there, but it just didn't work out.  I've been praying for months that it would travel the US, and I was so excited when they finally announced they were doing a tour!

I've had the Boston date of the show circled for months.  It was only when we started to plan our weekend down in Boston for early April that I realized it was also going to Nashua.  Not only did the Nashua dates work better for us, but they had way better seats still available, and it was supposed to be there on April 6th (Nana's birthday) and April 7th!  It was too good to be true, and I knew Eliot, Jeremy and I had to go.

The first half of the tour has traveled around the country, without any problems that I'm aware of.  Then, they suddenly took the entire second half of their US tour off of the website.  You can't get tickets, they're refunding people who already bought them, and they didn't say anything about why it happened.  The only thing I can think of, is they were suddenly able to go take the tour overseas to the UK and Ireland, so they cancelled this half of the US Tour and that they'll reschedule it when they're done.

And I really, really, really hope that I'm right.  I was so looking forward to this show.  It's looked so cute from everything that I've seen online.  I really want to see it live.

The puppets in the production are absolutely adorable.  I've already fallen head over heels for them.  And the actors that have brought them to life seem perfect for each of their roles.  I've seen a few short snippets and they've only made me want to see more.

And the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet plushies... you guys know how much of a weakness Eliot and I have for plush friends.  I've enjoyed watching the special plush that they made for the show on their adventures in the cities they've stopped in.  From riding on the subway in New York City, to visiting skyscrapers, to dining in a famous Chicago retro diner... it looks like they have had some fun moments!

So for now, we say goodbye to our friends from the Hundred Acre Wood.  I hope it's so long for now, but we'll see you again soon.  I'm still hopeful that our friends will return to the US to finish their tour, and that they'll be coming to a city near us soon.  °o°
