The Kennedy Center has commissioned a play from Elephant and Piggie series author Mo Willems.
Elephant & Piggie’s We Are in a Play! will run from November 23, 2013 to December 31, 2013. Willems himself will make an appearance during the opening weekend of this show.
Willems and his team worked on the show “for almost a year now in semi-secrecy.” In addition to penning the story for this show, they developed a trio of back-up singers, “The Squirrelles!,” and a live band, “Dr. Cat & the Bear-a-Tones.”
