It’s cold. It’s gray. It’s time to get happy and see the play everyone will be cheering about! The Happy Together Revue is back. This time bringing you the Love Edition — Love in all its permutations. First love, lost love, unrequited love, puppy love, love of community, broken-hearted love, love everlasting. Even old grumpy faces remember love songs from the ’50s, ’60s, ‘70s up until today. The Happy Together Revue is a cast of fabulous singers and musicians bringing music you remember and love, and you are invited to sing along. Maybe even kazoo along. And yes, there will be dancing in the aisles and audience participation. We insist. The last show SOLD OUT all performances, and those who saw it had a blast. A spontaneous conga line should tell you how much fun everyone had. THE CAST: Carol Duermit • Ryan Garcia • Jessica Clarke Johnson • Jay Ponton • Ellen Pappas • Musical Director-Richard Shulman.
