A celebration of the baby boomer generation, The Wonder Bread Years is a hilarious production that gracefully walks the line between standup comedy and theater.
Like opening up a time capsule packed with the joys of childhood, this show recalls Hula Hoop contests, lawn darts, Kool-Aid, Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, Big Wheels, Eskimo Pies, Clackers, Tuffskin Jeans and riding in the "way way back" of the Country Squire station wagon. Childhood memories have never been funnier. CLICK FOR VIDEO BELOW
