About This Show

The rarely produced Kander and Ebb musical The Happy Time tells the story of Jacques Bonnard, a world-traveling photographer who returns home to French-Canadian St. Pierre in search of his happy youth. Along the way, Bonnard fires up the romantic spirit of his hometown’s inhabitants and tempts his godson with dreams of escape. This classic tale of the prodigal son features a “lilting score” (New York Times) that is “melodious […] in variety and scope” (Newsday).

Michael Minarik is stunning in the Signature Theatre’s powerful revival of Kander & Ebb’s rarely staged 1968 musical about a French-Canadian family.
