Bob:  A Life in 5 Acts by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb is the Vertigo Theatre presentation October 17 – November 15 at Shoebox Theater, 2110 SE 10th Ave.

Born in the bathroom of a White Castle Restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky and abandoned by his birth mother, Bob dreams of becoming a great man – maybe even of being on a plaque someday.

This rags-to-riches fame-to-fall love-of-living-life tale follows Bob on an epic road trip towards that quintessential American ideal: happiness.
