Commissioned and developed by Lincoln Center Theater, HAPPINESS, tells the story of a disparate group of New Yorkers caught on a subway train under unusual circumstances. The production reunites director-choreographer Susan Stroman and book writer John Weidman, whose last LCT collaboration was the Tony Award-winning Best Musical Contact, and marks the LCT debuts of composer Scott Frankel and lyricist Michael Korie who were nominated for a Tony Award for their score for the musical Grey Gardens.

The musical has sets by Thomas Lynch, costumes by William Ivey Long, lighting by Donald Holder, sound design by Scott Lehrer, orchestrations by Bruce Coughlin and musical direction by Eric Stern.

HAPPINESS is performed Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8pm, with matinees Wednesday and Saturdays at 2pm and Sundays at 3pm. Tickets are available at the Lincoln Center Theater Box Office, at Tele-charge.com (212-239-6200) or by visiting www.lct.org.
