Jen returns to the History Theatre in a BRAND NEW MUSICAL
THE BOY WONDER
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Keith Hovis

Dubbed the “boy wonder” after being elected the youngest governor of Minnesota in 1938, Harold Stassen was a popular and progressive leader with a vision to unify America. A contemporary musical exploring Stassen’s relationship with his loving and supportive wife, the birth of the United Nations, and the impact he made here in Minnesota and beyond. Examining a time in our history and reflecting on where we are today, it is a story of perseverance, unity, and love for his family and country.
