After sold-out performances across the globe, including in England, China and Russia, acclaimed Finnish show Wally Whatthead and His Lost Glow is debuting in New York on January 14th at the New World Stages in Times Square. A unique combination of magic, clowning, mime, humor, black light theater and a variety of special effects, the show is sure to entertain kids and adults alike.
Everything is fine until one day Wally Watthead, a night lamp, loses his glow. A smartphone called Simon Simcard helps Wally regain his lost glow, resulting in numerous escapades and adventures, including Wally Watthead levitating in the air and shrinking himself to miniature size.Wally Watthead is played by magician Janne Raudaskoski. The voice of Simon Simcard is Jonathan Hutchings, and Polly Picture is played by Tuija Nuojua.
The show is 50 minutes long with no intermission and is recommended for kids ages 4 and up. (Kids under 4 will not be permitted in the theater)
