New York City
A NEW JERSEY PREMIERE
Goodbye gray skies, hello blue! Happy Days are here again with Richie, Potsie, Ralph Malph and the unforgettable “king of cool,” Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzarelli. Based on the hit Paramount Pictures’ television series, Happy Days: The Musical reintroduces one of America’s best loved families, the Cunninghams, and the days of 1959 Milwaukee – complete with varsity sweaters, hula hoops, and jukebox sock-hoppin’.
The famed drive-in malt shop and number one hang-out, Arnold’s, is in danger of demolition, so the gang teams up to save it with a dance contest and TV-worthy wrestling match against former Phister prison members Count Jacques and Jimbo, a.k.a. the infamous Malachi Brothers. Even the daredevil diva Pinky Tuscadero returns to help and perhaps reunite with her “Legend in Leather.”
Adapted by creator Garry Marshall (director of Pretty Woman, Beaches, and The Princess Diaries and producer of Laverne & Shirley, Mork & Mindy and The Odd Couple) with music by Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe winning songwriter Paul Williams.
