New Victory Theater presents Théâtre du Phare's family-friendly solo show about what exactly makes a family. More…
Simeon: 15, awkward, a brainiac. Morgan: eight, also awkward, also a brainiac. Venice: five, adorable. Orphaned and alone in the world, they make a vow to never be separated. Enter Balthazar: 26, handsome, gay, and the kids' older, immature half-brother they never knew they had. He's also their only hope for staying together. But is Balthazar ready to give up his irresponsible, party boy ways to become their guardian? Honest and heartrending, 'Oh Boy' is based on the book by Marie Aude-Murail. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
"Verlaguet’s adaptation is an impressively lively exploration of difficult topics, navigated expertly in a way that was accessible and honest…Tackling illness, adoption, suicide, and homosexuality in a kids’ piece is no easy feat. Yet 'Oh Boy!' manages to do so with precision and grace...Verlaguet has crafted a poignant and touching story for the stage…Matthew Brown will make you laugh, cry, and love with all your heart. This is bound to be an iconic performance…A must see." Full Review
See it if One man French play in English. 26 year old gay party boy has to care for 3 young relatives while facing self-doubt, homophobia and illness
Don't see it if With all this, it's basically a children's show, uplifting & instructive. Matthew Brown is a star, a talented whirlwind. Funny & empathetic
