First premiered in 2000 at the Manhattan Theatre Club, "Wonder of the World" revolves around a woman who dumps her husband and heads to Niagara Falls in search of freedom. She flees on a "journey of self-discovery that has her crossing paths with a blithely suicidal alcoholic, a salty sea captain and a strange caper involving a gargantuan jar of peanut butter, all of which push her perilously close to waters edge."
Thesps include Elizabeth Bond, David Ghilardi, Jill Holden, Jen Ray, Paul Stroili, Kimberly Van Luin and Ian Vogt, while Neil Wilson direct. Early reviews are strong; Broadway World called "Wonder of the World" " drop dead hilarious from beginning to end." Publication also called the cast "is a dream under Wilson's taut direction."
In other words, it sounds like it's worth your time. "Wonder of the World" runs Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. and on
Sunday afternoons at 4 p.m through November 1. All tickets are priced at $22.00 and will be available
for purchase online beginning Monday, August 16 at www.seaglasstheatre.org.
