A whirlwind of theatrical delight
Following a hugely successful premiere season at BATS, Wonderful comes to Circa.
Napier 1959. Brother Vianney has a calling. To educate the boys in his classroom and to help them become good, caring Catholic citizens. A larger-than-life presence, he calls upon his show business background and treats his class to the quirky insights that he has discovered from the popular films and romantic musicals of the 1950s.
Fall in love with Brother Vianney in this undeniably theatrical whirlwind of an education, filled with extraordinary wisdom, plenty of laughter, some great show songs and heart-breaking pathos.
‘It’s quite rare that you see a performance and writing and direction work together so seamlessly. Andrew Laing is masterful.’ — James Cain, Was it Good
‘A multi-layered and extremely absorbing “dance” that needs to be experienced. You won’t regret it’ — John Smythe, Theatreview
