Showhas it all

A sell-out dur­ing its 2015 Auck­land Arts Fes­ti­val sea­son, the ac­claimed and in­spir­ing award-win­ning stage show The Book of Ev­ery­thing comes to the Re­gent on Broad­way next week.


Adapted es­pe­cially for young peo­ple by Aus­tralian Richard Tul­loch from the chil­dren’s novel by Guus Kui­jer, The Book of Ev­ery­thing brings to­gether a stel­lar cast un­der the di­rec­tion of Sophie Roberts from Auck­land’s Silo Theatre. How’s this for cast­ing? Jen­nifer Ward-Lealand and Rima Te Wi­ata have both spent time at Cen­tre­point Theatre. Amanda Billing and Michelle Blun­dell will both be fa­mil­iar from Short­land Street; Dan Mus­grove from West­side and Un­der­belly, Stephen Lo­vatt from Neigh­bours, and Amanda Tito from Step Dave.

Amag­i­cal show, The Book of Ev­ery­thing cel­e­brates the lim­it­less power of imag­i­na­tion and of the heart in a per­for­mance for any­one aged be­tween 10 — 110.

Nine year old Thomas sees things that oth­ers don’t – a plague of green frogs, a hail­storm in sum­mer, trop­i­cal fish in the canals of Am­s­ter­dam, where he lives. He’s keep­ing a di­ary, The Book of Ev­ery­thing, in which he records all that he sees. And one day, he writes his great­est wish: ‘When I grow up, I’m go­ing to be happy.’

The Book of Ev­ery­thing plays the Re­gent on Broad­way next Tues­day and Wed­nes­day, March 8 – 9 at 7pm, with book­ings through tick­et­di­
