Frank Loesser’s musical theater masterpiece, The Most Happy Fella, is a celebration of love, a meditation on longing, and above all: an examination of the lengths we’ll go to satisfy our desires. In Most Happy, director Daniel Fish sets Loesser’s lyrical score for eight performers who gather on a stage design inspired by Florent, the iconic restaurant that—for more than 20 years—was a hub for entertainment, activism, and community in the heart of Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Plot fades away, leaving behind music, voice, and raw emotion. Fish, along with Daniel Kluger and Nathan Koci—his musical collaborators from the Bard SummerScape production of Oklahoma!—give audiences an entirely new way to experience the songs of an American musical treasure.
