The Most Happy Fella, Frank Loesser's most ambitious and romantic musical, tells the heart-stopping story of a love triangle between an aging Napa Valley farmer (Shuler Hensley), a young waitress (Laura Benanti) and a handsome, restless ranch hand (Cheyenne Jackson). It is based on the play They Knew What They Wanted by Sidney Howard, with a book, music and lyrics by Loesser. The score displays an astonishing range -ardent operatic numbers stand side by side with Broadway show-stoppers - and includes "Somebody Somewhere," "My Heart Is So Full of You," "Big D" and "Standing on the Corner." It opened at the Imperial Theatre on May 3, 1956 and ran for 676 performances.

Tickets to The Most Happy Fella start at $30 and can be purchased online at www.NYCityCenter.org, at the New York City Center Box Office West 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues), or through CityTix® at 212-581-1212.
