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
 
For ages 10+

Running time: 60 minutes with no intermission
