Here's how it's billed: "Ralph Kramden and Ed Norton are back and still shooting for the moon in this world-premiere musical. Filled with big laughs and an infectious score, The Honeymooners will bang-zoom its way into theatergoers' hearts."

The Honeymooners is being presented in association with Jeffrey Finn Productions, and under a license from CBS Broadcasting, Inc. Performances will run Sept. 18-Nov. 29, 2015.
