BWW JR: Wally Watthead and His Lost Glow
On January 14, a new show combining magic, clowning, mime and video comes from Helsinki, Finland to New York's New World Stages in a unique production for the whole family.
Wally Watthead and His Lost Glow is magician Janne Raudaskoski's experiential magic theatre performance for the entire family. The play takes place on the night desk of a girl called Polly - the home to a mobile phone, a night lamp and a picture of Polly. Everything is fine until one day Wally Watthead, the night lamp, loses his glow. Simon Simcard, a smartphone, helps Wally regain his glow, and the magic of the play is based on their adventures together. Among a variety of other tricks, Wally Watthead is seen levitating in the air and shrinking himself to miniature size. The chemistry between the two buddies is, however, put to test when Polly Picture - whom Wally is rather fond of - comes to life.
Wally Watthead and his Lost Glow will be performed at New World Stages (340 West 50th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues in Manhattan) on January 14, 2014 at 7:00 PM. It has a 50-minute running time with no intermission.
Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 8. They are priced at $37.50 and $42.50 with $67.50 premium seats available as well. They can be purchased at the New World Stages box office or through Telecharge at www.telecharge.com or (800) 447-7400.
