THIS SPRING, A NEW ADVENTURE
IS COMING TO CHICAGO

Disney's iconic Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin and their best friends Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, and Owl (oh… and don't forget Tigger too!) have come to life in a beautifully crafted musical stage adaptation.

Featuring the Sherman Brothers' classic Grammy Award-winning music with further songs by A.A. Milne, this beautiful fresh stage adaptation is told with stunning life-sized puppetry through the eyes of the characters we all know and love, in a new story from the Hundred Acre Wood.

This production is created by renowned family entertainment creator Jonathan Rockefeller, and made by Rockefeller Productions alongside Disney Theatrical Productions. Following a record-breaking New York premiere in 2021, The Hundred Acre Wood is headed to the Mercury Theater Chicago, opening March 15, 2022!

 Audrey, the apple of Seymour’s eye, is brought to life by Emilie Rose Danno with the perfect accent and body-hugging wardrobe. Any guy would be lucky to have Danno’s brand of arm candy by his side.

Both Danno and Yacullo look for the truth of their character throughout the performance. Every action and reaction is calculated and thought out. You can’t help but to respect and enjoy their performances.

"Around The Town"

Highly Recommended ***** I know in the past, when it came to shows at The Metropolis Performing Arts Centre in Arlington Heights, I have been unkind, but the current production of “Avenue Q” took my breath away!

The love of Princeton’s life is Kate Monster ( handled by the adorable Emilie Rose Danno), who wants to find her mate, but of greater import, to establish a school for monsters so they can be treated as equals.

Yacullo and Danno, the production's likable leads, are strong singers whose vulnerability makes them convincing as broken dreamers. That quality is especially effective in "Somewhere That's Green," an ode to life's simple things, winsomely performed by Danno. Yacullo is equally endearing as a well-meaning man seduced by celebrity.

Metropolis’ ‘Avenue Q’ provides an R-rated and hilarious adults-only revisit to the ‘Street’

By Erika Brown Thomas

July 20, 2023

Kate Monster (Emilie Rose Danno), in a world where puppets are part of societal norms and strife, brings to life the disrespect and flagrant prejudice her character experiences for simply being a “monster.” Danno easily brings an honesty and likeability to the young monster’s story, especially when also exploring the ups and downs of her romantic relationship with Princeton. A particular standout moment for Danno is her Act I finale ballad, “There’s A Fine, Fine Line.”

Chicagoland Musical Theatre - Highly Recommended

Critical in this reviewer’s thought-process about this particular show is the need for two specific songs to be sung extraordinarily well for the production to have merit—the first act’s Audrey ballad, “Somewhere That’s Green,” and act two’s Audrey/Seymour duet, “Suddenly Seymour.” Indeed, the lovely Emilie Rose Danno as Audrey and Mark Yacullo as Seymour absolutely deliver, shining in these roles throughout the entire production-" Barry Reszel"

The cast is dynamic and highly energetic. Usnavi’s girlfriend, Vanessa is played by the lovely Emilie Rose Danno ( another one that should be grabbed by local theater companies)
