Word Nerd

A Senior Thesis in Theater & Performance Studies for Bibiana Torres, Simon Rabinowitz, & Will Wegner and a Senior Thesis in Music for Griffin Strout

by Will Wegner, Charlie Romano, & Simon Rabinowitz

The key information of the show spelled out in word boxes.

Bob Otto is America’s second favorite cruciverbalist (n. someone skillful in creating or solving crossword puzzles) and the host of his very own syndicated television game show, Word Nerd. But when the show’s producers devise a questionable plan to boost the show’s falling ratings, Bob is faced with a difficult choice—should he maintain his personal and professional integrity, or do what he must to save the show from its imminent cancellation? Word Nerd is a wacky, playful story of friendship, loyalty, redemption, and puzzles. Following auditions in the October cycle, Word Nerd will be workshopped throughout November and December, with members of the cast and crew sharing their insight and experience to help revise and refine the scenes and songs. Full rehearsals of the revised show will begin in the spring, all culminating in a concert production in April.
