Open: 12/13/19- Close: 03/03/20 PADDINGTON GETS IN A JAM
Jonathan Rockefeller brings a new show to New York featuring the star of page and screen: Paddington.

In Jonathan Rockefeller’s Paddington Gets in a Jam, Paddington is at home making his favorite marmalade jam, with the help of the Brown’s housekeeper Mrs. Bird, but they run out of sugar.

Paddington volunteers to help get the house ready for the visit, but in typical Paddington fashion, his good intentions lead to hysterical chaos.
