Written by Lynn Shore, Mark Vogel and David Burnham, and directed and choreographed by Paul Stancato, Happy 50ish! is scheduled to open July 26 and run through Aug. 30. Shore and Vogel comprise the cast.
The show is set at the surprise birthday party for the main character, Bob. The story is described thus: "As he turns the big five-0, he learns to laugh and make fun of all the things that inevitably come with age. He's arrived early for his party, his wife is running late, and there's a backyard full of party guests. While reading his birthday cards aloud, he learns that turning 50 magnifies the unintended and hilarious realities of middle age."
The theatre is located at 410 West 42nd Street on Theatre Row. Performances are scheduled for 8 PM Wednesdays through Saturdays, with matinees on Saturday at 2 PM and Sunday at 3 PM Tickets cost $69.50 - $99.50 and are available through Telecharge at (212) 239-6200 or www.Telecharge.com.
