The Fonz has nothing to do with this existential comic masterpiece that stars two renowned performers: Brooke Adams (Days of Heaven, Monk) and Emmy, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award winner Tony Shalhoub (Monk, Men in Black, Wings). A brilliant play by Samuel Beckett -- the Nobel Prize-winning author of Waiting For Godot -- this Happy Days, directed by Andrei Belgrader, blends existential tragedy with absurdist comedy as it tells the painfully comic story of Winnie -- a woman buried up to her bosom in dirt, passing the time with the contents of her bag, her quick wit and her husband Willie. Beckett uses this droll, allegorical story to continue his relentless search for the meaning of existence, probing the tenuous relationships that bind one person to another, and each to the universe -- in a tale newly relevant to a generation concerned with catastrophic climate change.

This was the first preview performance of the play, I would like to see how they tweak it down the line. This theater is very interactive with its patrons, many times scheduling comment/discussion events after the play in various formats. I thought the fairly simple story line was creatively brought to life by the abstract interpretive style of the play, and the lighting was unique and effective. All the actors were strong, and the style of the play let the viewer's mind add its own details based on personal opinions and experience. An ambitious work, I may go back and see a later production of it as well.
