Bob Stromberg’s comic theatrical show That Wonder Boy is honored to be selected as a “Best of 10 Years” show for the 10th Anniversary season of the United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City this October, performing at Theatre Row on October 5 at 2:00 p.m.
The show is a warm-hearted, laugh-out-loud exploration of life and art that begins with a flying baby and soars on a creative flight of laughter, joy and wonder through the eyes of a boy growing up in an artless environment, only to be blindsided by the beauty of art. Though his character’s story is unique, Stromberg has a way of evoking universal emotional moments that we all recognize.
Stromberg is a co-author and veteran performer of the international hit Triple Espresso—a highly caffeinated comedy and author of “The Wide-Eyed Creative” podcast. The Chicago Sun Times calls him “…a mesmerizing physical comedian” and the London Times, “…a genuinely funny man.”
That Wonder Boy is directed by Risa Brainin, an award-winning freelance director and Founder/Artistic Director of the groundbreaking new play development program LAUNCH PAD at UC Santa Barbara. Brainin formerly served on the artistic staff at the Guthrie Theater and has directed for numerous
theaters around the country. Music and soundscape are by composer/musical director Michael Pearce Donley, set and costumes by Nayna Ramey, lighting by Michael Klaers.
