Don’t miss this 1946 Comedy Classic From the author of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes!

Directed by Scott Alan Evans

The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row – 410 West 42nd Street (between 9th & 10th Aves)

From the playwright of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes comes Happy Birthday, a sparkling and effervescent gem from 1946. Follow mild-mannered librarian Addie Bemis as she discovers love and vitality through an enchanted evening at a dodgy Newark cocktail lounge. With each round of drinks, the bar comes alive; the gin bottles glow, the cash register sings and the vibrant locals overflow with spirit. Addie learns to put down the books, pick up a glass and leave her cautious lifestyle behind.
