Happy 50ish! at Beckett Theatre, Theatre's Row

A new mid-life crisis musical comedy Happy 50ish! written by Lynn Shore, Mark Vogel and David Burnham will run at the Beckett Theatre on Theatre Row from 15 July to 30 August 2015, with an official opening on 26 July 2015.

Happy 50ish! is a musical comedy that revolves around Bob's surprise birthday party. As he turns the big five-0, he learns to laugh and makefun of all the things that inevitably come with age. He's arrived early for his party, his wife is running late, and there's a backyard full of party guests. While reading his birthday cards aloud, he learns that turning 50 magnifies the unintended and hilarious realities of middle age.

The production will star Lynn Shore and Mark Vogel, with direction and choreography by Paul Stancato. It is produced off-Broadway by Patrick Schwier.
