Oh Boy! at The Duke on 42nd Street

The New Victory Theater presents the U.S. debut of the English version of OH BOY!, directed by French director Olivier Letellier, at The Duke on 42nd Street, from January 6-15, 2017.

Based on Marie Aude-Murail’s renowned children’s novel, Oh Boy! is the honest and heartrending story of a group of siblings that unexpectedly land in the lap of an unprepared young man. This one-man tour de force explores what it means to be a family, and the importance of pulling together when faced with some of life's most devastating moments.

A critical and public success in France, Oh Boy! received the Molière award (equivalent to the Tony award) for the best theater production for young audience in 2010.

Adaptation for the stage by Catherine Verlaguet

Translation by Nicholas Elliott
Direction Olivier Letellier
Actor Matthew Brown

The production of the English version of Oh Boy! has been developed by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, in partnership with Théâtre du Phare; as part of Kids Trail, a cultural program dedicated to children and families initiated by the French Embassy.  
With additional support from FACE FoundationInstitut français-Paris, and SACD (Société des auteurs et compositeurs dramatiques).
