“The Wonder Bread Years” at Victoria Theatre

Editor’s Pick

By Nicole Wroten

“The Wonder Bread Years” opened December 7 at Victoria Theatre. This production is a comic salute to the “Baby Boomer” generation that walks the line between stand-up and theatre. If you grew up in the ‘60s or ‘70s (or raised kids in those decades), you’ll remember the joy of these years through this magical play. All the fun of Halloween night, Christmas morning and other high watermarks of American youth are played out in this pitch-perfect comedy. Seen on PBS, this laugh-out-loud walk down memory lane stars “one of the five funniest people in America” (Showtime) and “America’s foremost pop culture anthropologist” (PBS): Pat Hazell. Pat is one of the original writers for NBC’s “Seinfeld,” a “Tonight Show” veteran, a critically acclaimed playwright and a contributing commentator to National Public Radio. “The Wonder Bread Years” runs December 7-19 at Victoria Theatre. Call (888) 228-3630 for tickets, or visit www.victoriatheatre.com for more information.
