Happy Hunting has a book by Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse, lyrics by Matt Dubey and music by Harold Karr. The musical was originally a star vehicle written for Ethel Merman.
"When Liz Livingstone — rich, widowed Philadelphia hostess with a heart of gold — perceives a snub at the Grace Kelly-Prince Rainier 'Wedding of the Year' in Monaco, she single-mindedly sets out to snare an even more impressively titled husband for her daughter," according to press notes. "Things get predictably complicated when she succeeds and then promptly falls for her intended son-in-law herself. Meanwhile, the bride-to-be only has eyes for the society lawyer, and Liz’s dashing Duke turns out to be very possibly penniless."
Here's a look at the cast of Happy Hunting:
