What would you do for love? If you’re Jimmy Livingston, a kid stuck in the shelter of the suburbs without a friend or an immune system, you make yourself a bubble suit and risk it all in a cross-country adventure to stop a wedding! Jimmy will need to leave the metaphorical bubble his strict parents have placed him in (while staying in his actual bubble… so he can live) and find out what the real world is all about.

That’s Bubble Boy, a mad-cap, pop-musical unlike anything you’ve seen at Arcade before.

We’re presenting our first ever musical, and it’s as goofy, absurd, and hilarious as you’d expect — from the same team that brought you 2018’s production of SEX a.k.a Wieners and BoobsFeaturing a cast of over a dozen actors accompanied by a full band.

Special Thanks to our Sponsors:


The Cultural District is a bustling, exciting place to be — whether it’s a street festival, Pirates game, or Hollywood film shoot, there’s always something cool happening. So give yourself a little extra time to park and get to the theater. There are is a parking garage within a block of the theater, which is only $6 for the night: Smithfield & Liberty Garage.

There are also a number of bus stops near us, as well as the Wood Street T-Station, if you’re taking public transit. Drop-off and pick-up areas are available right in front of our building.

Production Policies & Info

  • These performances are BYOB: for a corkage fee, patrons are allowed to bring in 1 bottle of wine or a 6-pack of beer or malt beverages. No liquor. Please drink responsibly, and any visibly intoxicated patrons will be asked to leave. Here’s our full BYOB policy.
  • All seating is general admission, with doors opening approximately 15 minutes before curtain. Guests arriving once the show has started will be asked to wait for a break in the action before being seated, and we can’t guarantee you’ll be able to sit together. Also, this play will make very little sense if you miss the beginning, so please arrive on time.
