The Most Happy Fella” is everyone's favorite musical they're never seen. For lovers of music theater, the piece is somehow solidly part of our internal repertoire but yet very few of us have actually seen a production - and this is probably because the piece is difficult to cast and produce.  It requires strong (almost operatic) voices with great acting skills, and it requires a production that can clearly communicate an epic story that is filled with hope, longing, redemption and love. 

Think lush, gorgeous music with a complex, and moving story-line. 

Quite like a spicy, oak-aged Chardonnay from the Napa Valley.
