Happy Days - The Musical

Went down to La Mirada to see the opening night on Saturday night. The cast was great, especially Felicia Finley (who I worked with at the El Captain Theater in Hollywood when she was a snowflake and I was a 4 part harmony boy in the preshow before 3 Musketeers and then again in the reading of "The Joys of Sex"). She plays the role of you guessed it, Pinky Tuscadero.

It was great to see all the legends of show business that are involved with the project including Garry Marshall of course, Paul Williams, John McDaniel (we did Grease! together way back when and he was the musical director when I played Jack in Into the Woods), Gordon Greenberg, Bob Boyett as well as Tom McCoy and Cathy Rigby.

If you are looking for a family friendly show with a heck of a production budget, this one is for you. It is certainly fun to remember all those great characters and how simple things seemed way back when...
