“The science geeks have all the fun in “The Amazing Adventures of Dr. Wonderful and Her Dog!,” a jauntily educational children’s musical at the Kennedy Center’s Family Theater. Featuring a book and lyrics by Lauren Gunderson, with a perky pop-show tune score by Brian Lowdermilk, this hour-long world premiere (recommended for ages 6 and up) launches its eponymous schoolgirl heroine on a quest to solve a cosmic mystery.” – The Washington Post
“It was exhilarating to see Dr Wonderful’s curiosity, her big hungry mind, and her great heart. Dr Wonderful is a hero for all of us–may we all leap towards the unknown with such bravery!” – Lucy Alibar, playwright and Oscar-Nominated screenwriter of Beasts of the Southern Wild
“The clever and adventurous Dr. Wonderful and her sidekick, Newton the dog, are a pair I’d follow anywhere! Dr. Wonderful demonstrates the power of curiosity-driven learning and deductive reasoning in this exceptional book investigating the phases of the moon.” –Christina Wallace, co-host, The Limit Does Not Exist and founding director, BridgeUp: STEM at the American Museum of Natural History
