This program, as usual for Musical Theatre West, was outstanding.
The cast had great voices and the 42 musical numbers showcased the many talents of Frank Loesser.
Unfortunately, it was only for one performance.
A long standing Musical West season subscriber.
The Most Happy Fella is Frank Loesser’s musical about Napa Valley vineyard owner Tony Esposito who falls in love with a waitress from San Francisco. After many letters between them, Tony arranges for her to come and marry him. The catch is that the waitress doesn’t remember seeing him in the restaurant and Tony, being insecure about his age and his looks has sent a picture of his ranch hand Joe to her instead of his own. The Most Happy Fella is a thru-sung piece of musical theatre and the glorious score ranges from operatic to Golden Age Broadway.
