From Frank Loesser, the composer of Guys and Dolls, comes this touching, dramatic and intensely personal love story which is the best musical you have never heard of. Your heart will be warmed by this May-to-December romance, when a city bride is wooed by an aging Italian grape farmer who nearly botches everything... until his true goodness shines through. With a gorgeous score and spirited dancing, The Most Happy Fella is a simple and touching romance that makes for an extraordinary night of theatre. Filled with sweeping ballads, intense dramatic arias and tuneful, splashy Broadway-style numbers, this ambitious "Broadway opera" has found a home on opera and musical-theatre stages alike. The show's lasting popularity has led to two Broadway revivals. This is arguably the most ambitious musical Mentor Theatre has undertaken.
