Wonder of the World Opening at Bruka


Now in its 22nd season, Bruka Theatre has consistently been named “Best Reno Theater” by Reno News and Review. Seventeen years of consistency, to be exact. The theatre has been lauded for its productions, children’s theater, and more. The theater brings to life both contemporary and classic stage plays, while also developing new plays through the Bruka Artistic Collective, an award-winning group of playwrights and actors

Start April off right with Wonder of the World, written by David Lindsay-Abaire and directed by Stacy Johnson. The play bills itself as “a whimsical and playfully wicked journey of self-discovery.” Falling into the genre of absurd comedy, the play follows a couple dealing with a seven year marital itch and the steps they take to scratch that itch. It’s self-actualization at its funniest (and finest).

The play runs April 3 through April 25, with 8 p.m. shows most nights. There is a Sunday matinee April 12 at 2 p.m. Advance tickets are $20 for general admission, $18 for students, seniors, and military; all tickets at the door are $25. Purchase tickets at Melting Pot World Emporium or online at brownpapertickets.com.
