Run Time: 2 hours including intermission

by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb
directed by Sean Daniels
This is a story. A story of a dream. A dream of greatness. The greatness of Bob.

Sometimes it comes down to just one thing: Bob.
Bob was born and abandoned in a White Castle bathroom in Louisville, Kentucky. The ensuing rags-to-riches-to-fame-to-fall-to-legacy-to-the-love-of-living-life tale follows Bob on an epic journey in just five acts. Nachtrieb, author of boom, the most produced play in America last season, returns to Actors Theatre with a hilarious and poignant story of one man’s dream. A dream of greatness. The greatness of Bob.

Recommended for ages high school and up.
