The Most Happy Fella

$30 - $130

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, a young waitress and a handsome, restless ranch hand. The Most Happy Fella will star Shuler Hensley.

The Most Happy Fella is based on the play They Knew What They Wanted by Sidney Howard. Ithas a book, music and lyrics by Frank Loesser. Loesser's 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.'
