Wheelhouse Theater Company and the cast of Happy Birthday, Wanda June gave a private press & industry luncheon in celebration of celebrated American satirist, Kurt Vonnegut. Attendees include members of the Vonnegut Family at Bond 45, 221 West 46th Street, “The Villa”. Guests were treated to scenes from the show.
The mood was festive and the buffet was scrumptious. I have yet to have been able to sup at Bond 54, but this made it a priority of places to eat.
Happy Birthday, Wanda June returns for a limited engagement October 18th – November 29th at The Duke on 42nd Street, a new 42nd Street ® project, 229 West 42nd Street in Manhattan. The official opening is set for Tuesday, October 23rd.
Happy Birthday, Wanda June takes a searing and darkly comedic look at American culture through the brilliantly perverse lens of Kurt Vonnegut. Wheelhouse Theater Company’s original cast returns for this special engagement and features
Jason O’Connell (Sense & Sensibility – Bedlam)
Kate MacCluggage (Ironbound – Kitchen Theatre Company)
Matt Harrington (Matilda – Broadway, 1st National Tour, Twelfth Night, Richard III – Shakespeare’s Globe, Harvey – Roundabout Theatre Company)

Wheelhouse’s Happy Birthday, Wanda June garnered unanimous rave reviews this spring at the Gene Frankel Theatre and offers up dynamic and often hilarious insight into toxic masculinity.
