If you were a ’90s kid, your childhood included three things: Cabbage Patch Kids, Pogs & Mara Wilson.
Wilson was a child star who ruled the ‘90s. She was the youngest child in the oh-so-important childhood masterpiece Mrs. Doubtfire.
Next she starred in the remake of A Miracle on 34th Street. #AllTheTears
And then there was Matilda. Before it was a hit B’way musical, Mara Wilson was Matilda, and it was glorious.
Now, Mara (who is currently working on her first novel and regularly hosts What Are You Afraid Of? at Union Hall) is getting ready to have a Broadway moment with fellow comedian Jenny Jaffe (who you def know her from CollegeHumor).
The ladies take the stage at 54 Below on July 21 as the hosts of the new show Send in the Clowns. It’s billed as a show featuring comedians who secretly wish they were Broadway stars, performing some of their favorite show tunes.
So treat your Broadway fan self and your inner ‘90s kid with a night out at 54 Below.
