Susan Stroman directs the musical featuring a book by Weidman and a score by Grey Gardens collaborators Korie and Frankel. The company celebrated opening night at O'Neal's in New York City. "Happiness unfolds the stories of a dozen or so New Yorkers stuck in the morning rush of a stalled subway car and required by the spectral trainman to recall and re-enact the happiest moment in their lives before they can continue their travels... and travails," according to LCT.
The cast includes Fred Applegate, Sebastian Arcelus, Miguel Cervantes, Hunter Foster, Joanna Gleason, Ken Page, Robert Petkoff, Jenny Powers, Phyllis Somerville, Pearl Sun, Ana Maria Andricain, Holly Ann Butler, Patrick Cummings, Janet Dickinson, Alan H. Green, Samantha Maza, James Moye, Alessa Neeck, Eric Santagata, Robb Sapp, Alexander Scheitinger, Lina Silver, Idara Victor and Matt Wall.
