In Happy Days, according to press notes, "Brooke Adams plays Winnie, a woman buried up to her bosom in a mound of dirt with nothing to pass the time but the ragged contents of her bag, her nimble wit, and her husband Willie, played by Tony Shalhoub, lurking somewhere behind her. This droll, existential allegory demonstrates the vitality of the human spirit in the face of a deteriorating world."

The creative team includes scenic designer Takeshi Kata, lighting designer Tom Ontiveros, costume designer Melanie Watnick, sound designer Rob Oriol, prop designer Madison Rhoades, stage manager Michal V. Mendelson and production consultant Alyssa Escalante.

Performances continue through July 18. Show times are Monday-Wednesday at 7 PM and Saturday at 3 PM.
