New Musical: Bubble Boy, feat. Matt Doyle, Alice Ripley & more
November 9, 2016
Join us for the NYC premiere of the show that Stephen Schwartz called, “One of the cleverest, funniest, and most endearing musicals I’ve seen in a long time.” Feinstein’s/54 Below presents in concert the new musical Bubble Boy! Bubble Boy, based on the 2001 cult comedy starring Jake Gyllenhaal, is by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, the writing team behind Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, The Lorax, and The Secret Life of Pets. Come see an all-star Broadway cast perform all the songs from this exciting new show.
Bubble Boy tells the story of Jimmy Livingston, born without immunities and confined inside a plastic bubble room. When the love of his life leaves town to get married, Jimmy travels cross-country in a homemade bubble suit in order to stop the wedding and finally tell her how he feels. Along the laugh-filled journey he deals with a crazy cult, a biker gang, a dead cow, and a controlling mother who will stop at nothing to get him back in the bubble.
