Short Synopsis

"One of the cleverest, funniest, and most endearing musicals I've seen in a long time." —Stephen Schwartz. "…delivers quite a bit of fun…with a sweet ending that is entirely in line with the rest of its good-natured story." —NY Times. "A completely entertaining show that incorporates humor into a bizarre situation, with a strong sense of humanity at its core…this musical is heartwarming fun for all ages." —BroadwayWorld.com. "A likable and lively contemporary-pop, fun-filled musical fantasy." —TalkinBroadway.com

Jimmy Livingston was born without immunities and has spent his entire life confined inside a plastic bubble room. Enter Chloe, the girl next door, who becomes his friend and steals his heart. When she leaves town to get married, Jimmy travels cross-country in a homemade bubble suit in order to stop the wedding and finally tell her how he feels. Along the laugh-filled journey he deals with a crazy cult, a biker gang, a dead cow, and a controlling mother who will stop at nothing to get him back in the bubble.
