Happy Days UK Tour#1

From WOS

A new musical version of classic American sitcom Happy Days is set to tour the UK later this year, with Craig Revel Horwood attached as director/choreographer.

The show, first seen in the US in 2008, is written by the TV series' creator Garry Marshall and features music and lyrics by Oscar and Grammy-winner Paul Williams, who has penned hits including "Rainy Days and Mondays" for the Carpenters, "The Rainbow Connection", and "Evergreen".


The cast of the original sitcom
According to advance publicity material: "Happy days are here again, as the unforgettable 'king of cool' Arthur 'The Fonz' Fonzarelli returns! Based on the hit TV series, Happy Days - A New Musical reintroduces one of America's best loved families, the Cunninghams, and the days of 1959 Milwaukee, complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops and jukebox sock-hoppin'!"

Happy Days, which is being produced by Amy Anzel Productions, could begin a UK tour as early as the autumn ahead of a possible West End transfer.

A previous jukebox musical version of the fifties-set sitcom - which originally starred Ron Howard and Henry Winkler - toured back in 1999.
