Way Off Broadway's production of Disney's Winnie the Pooh, which runs through October 28th, is based on the 2011 Disney animated film and welcomes audiences to the Hundred Acre Wood, where Pooh is once again in search of honey. Along the way, he meets his pals Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit, and Owl, but soon discovers that Christopher Robin has been captured by the Backson! As they prepare for a rescue operation, the animals learn about teamwork, friendship, and sharing snacks.
