About the show: Jimmy Livingston was born without immunities and has spent his entire life confined inside a plastic bubble room. Enter Chloe, the girl next door, who becomes his friend and steals his heart. When she 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.
“I’m excited to bring Bubble Boy the Musical to audiences because, while the show is bright and campy on the surface, it showcases a beacon of humanity and the spirit of love,” says Director Colin Roybal, “and I think we can all use a little of that in our own lives right now.”
