Most Happy in Concert
Williamstown Theatre Festival (1000 Main St., Williamstown, MA 01267)
An evening of songs from Frank Loesser’s The Most Happy Fella offer an evocative meditation from Daniel Fish, the director of the boldly reimagined, Tony Award-winning revival of Oklahoma! and choreography by Jawole Willa Jo Zollar.
Drawing on a broad range of musical genres and performed by a company of 20 actors and musicians, Most Happy in Concert invigorates the musical concert form, in a deep dive into love, desire, isolation and connection — with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, with music arrangements by Daniel Kluger and Nathan Koci and vocal Arrangements by Nathan Koci and Daniel Fish, and orchestrations by Daniel Kluger, in association with the Fisher Center at Bard. The cast includes Tina Fabrique, Erin Markey, Mallory Portnoy and Mary Testa.
The show will run July 13 to 31 on Williamstown Theatre’s mainstage. Covid protocols will change as safety asks.
