Remember when I explained how to see a play? If you haven’t already used those five easy steps to see Bust (and you still have another week or so, so get going on that), you might try them out on a new show opening next month at City Theatre: The Wonder Bread Years.
City Theatre announces a special summer engagement of The Wonder Bread Years, a hilarious one-man show by former Seinfeld writer Pat Hazell. An open-ended run of this hit comedy will begin Thursday, July 10, 2008 in City Theatre’s Lester Hamburg Studio. Anyone who remembers Silly Putty and Sugar Pops will love this entertaining salute to Baby Boomer culture, performed at City Theatre by John Mueller.
The Wonder Bread Years features a set that will evoke the typical front porch and yard of an American kid in the 1960s and 70s. With the fast pace of stand-up comedy, plus audience interaction, the show looks back on the food, toys, holiday customs, commercials, and TV shows of an amazing era. Manwich, Spam, the kid’s table, Rock’em Sock’em Robots, milk money, Dilly Bars, road trips in the way-back seat of the family station wagon—these are just a few of the slices of Americana that will be served up in The Wonder Bread Years.
