Michael Bond’s loveable, accident-prone bear, Paddington, has delighted readers and audiences of all ages for more than half a century. In this original slapstick comedy, Paddington only wants to help his neighbor, the ever-grumpy Mr. Curry, prepare for visitors: repairing pipes, vacuuming floors, installing wallpaper, baking a cake … but in typical Paddington fashion nothing goes according to plan! Will Paddington be able to fix everything in time? Come find out at this 2019 New York Times Critics Pick!
