Lloyd Suh (2011 Wrier/Director Lab alum) has a new show on in New York City and Soho Rep. is thrilled to spread the word about it. We are particularly excited that it is a show for small people from around the age of 6 and upwards. Playing at LaMama, THE WONG KIDS IN THE SECRET OF THE SPACE CHUPACABRA GO! is a co-production between our friends at Ma-Yi and our friends The Children’s Theatre in Minneapolis.
Using a mix of action-driven storytelling, puppetry, and visual magic, THE WONG KIDS transports its audience into the far reaches of the galaxy. Violet and Bruce Wong just don’t fit in with the other Earth kids. Sure, they have superpowers, they’re just not very good ones. But when an evil beast called the Space Chupacabra appears, intent on universal destruction, The Wong Kids must travel to outer space in order to stop it… if they can only stop bickering. Violet and Bruce ultimately realize that being different isn’t just okay, it might just be the most important thing like ever.
We think Lloyd’s play will appeal to kids of all ages, as well as to Soho Rep. audiences who appreciate theatricality in all its multifarious forms, sizes and shapes.
