From Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, the creators of "Despicable Me," "Despicable Me 2," and "The Secret Life of Pets," comes BUBBLE BOY: THE MUSICAL!
The musical is an adaptation of the cult film released in 2001 (also written by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul), starring Jake Gyllenhaal as Jimmy, Marley Shelton as Chloe, and Swoosie Kurtz as Mrs. Livingston.
Jimmy, a boy born without immunities, is raised in a bubble by his overbearing, close-minded mother. When his best and only friend, Chloe, decides to marry her high school boyfriend, Jimmy fashions himself a portable bubble and takes off for Niagara Falls to stop the wedding and win the heart of the girl he loves.
"One of the cleverest, funniest, and most endearing musicals I've seen in a long time." —Stephen Schwartz.
