Stage: Events

Wonder of the World

Whether it’s just a bad day, or a full-blown depression, we’ve all been in a situation where it seems like nothing will ever cheer us up. Such is the main dilemma of the characters in David Lindsay-Abaire's Wonder of the World. While some may find solace at the bottom of a bottle or a long list of things to do, all roads for these characters seem to meet at one place, Niagara Falls. Once there, everything gets curiouser and curiouser: private investigators, screaming waitresses, and the severed head of a Barbie doll with a sordid past—could it get any better? The answer is yes, but there is simply too much funny to fit here; Wonder had the entire audience roaring the whole night through. Presented by ReAct Theatre. Richard Hugo House, 1634 11th Ave., $6-$15. 8 p.m. Fri. 2 & 8 p.m. Sat. Ends Aug 26.
