Tickets, priced $90 (for previews through March 29) and $95 (post-opening), are now available by visiting, or the Lincoln Center Theater box office.

Tony-winning director and choreographer Susan Stroman stages the new work, which will begin performances Off-Broadway Feb. 27 and officially open at Lincoln Center Theater's Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater March 30. Happiness will play a 14-week engagment.

Lincoln Center Theater commissioned the new musical that reunites Tony-nominated Contact book writer John Weidman and Tony-winning director/choreographer Stroman. Korie and Frankel are known for their work on the Tony-nominated musical Grey Gardens.

The starry cast of the Manhattan-set Happiness comprises Fred Applegate (Young Frankenstein, The Producers), Sebastian Arcelus (Jersey Boys, Wicked), Miguel Cervantes (Spelling Bee, The Nightingale) Hunter Foster (Dust, Urinetown), Joanna Gleason (Into the Woods, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), Ken Page (It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues), Robert Petkoff (Spamalot), Jenny Powers (Dangerous Beauty, Little Women), Phyllis Somerville (Over Here, 'Night Mother), Pearl Sun (How the Grinch Stole Christmas), Ana Maria Andricain, Holly Ann Butler, Patrick Cummings, Janet Dickinson (Forbidden Broadway), Alan H. Green (Play On!), Samantha Maza, James Moye (Tale of Two Cities), Alessa Neeck (White Christmas), Eric Santagata (The Apple Tree), Rob Sapp (Zanna, Don't!), Alexander Scheitinger (Damn Yankees), Lina Silver (A Midsummer Night's Dream), Idara Victor (Show Boat) and Matt Wall (The Drowsy Chaperone).

According to Lincoln Center Theater, "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. Happiness celebrates those fleeting moments in everyday lives — typically unanticipated, largely overlooked, always ephemeral — that upon reflection become people's fondest memories." The design team includes Thomas Lynch (set design), William Ivey Long (costume design), Donald Holder (lighting design) and Scott Lehrer (sound design).
