One of the quirkiest, wackiest, zaniest novels in all of children’s literature — Sideways Stories From Wayside School — is now a wonderfully weird stage play at the Arden Theatre. Is your school a little too … normal? Time to transfer to Wayside, where (thanks to a confused builder) instead of having 31 classrooms on one floor, there are 31 floors with one classroom a piece. But the building might be the most normal thing about Wayside. Consider Mrs. Gorf: She turns kid into apples if they give a wrong answer. And then there’s Miss Zarves, who teaches the class on the 19th story — except there is no 19th story and there is no Miss Zarves. Whit MacLaughlin directs this hilarious adaptation of a brilliantly bizarre classic.
