Wonder Boy tells the story of Jackson, a young man navigating his identity as a transgender man and as a superhero. When Jackson’s super genius twin sister creates a mysterious super drug, Jackson steals it, consumes it, and transforms into Wonder Boy. He becomes his college campus’s superhero, and saves the day (“but in a feminist way”). However as he takes on his new responsibility, he soon learns that his new powers may be destroying the life he planned for himself. Through an imaginative pop rock score and libretto, Wonder Boy explores vulnerability, masculinity, and the connections we make to survive the dissonance we all feel between our bodies and brains.
