I haven’t seen the new Jurassic World movie yet, mostly because I don’t have the attention span for long movies but it is very high on my to-do list. Is it just me or does it seem like every new movie that comes out is more than two hours long?
One of the stars from multiple Jurassic movies is in Maine and recently posted a selfie with a fan at the Ogunquit Playhouse.
BD Wong plays Dr. Henry Wu in Jurassic World as Jurassic Park’s chief geneticist. The actor, writer and director has also worked on Law & Order: SVU, Mr Robot, Charlie Brown, Mulan, and shows on Broadway.
What is BD Wong Doing in Maine?
Great question. As mentioned in his Instagram caption, he’s here at the Ogunquit Playhouse for a musical he wrote and is directing, Mr. Holland’s Opus. The new musical is about a man giving up his dreams for teaching to make ends meet and how that transforms into his journey of impacting the lives of others.
As the Ogunquit Playhouse website shares, “this musical journey is a love letter to the enduring influence music has on humanity and the difference one person can make.”
Hence why Wong told his fan to follow his dreams! You can actually listen to Wong tell you about the musical himself:
The musical has been running in Ogunquit since August 13 but you can catch it until Saturday, September 10. It has had extremely positive reviews, plus it’s super cool that the writer and director is such a big name!
If you’re looking for something to do this week, I would add this to your list.
