The Most Happy Fella is often described as on the “operatic” spectrum of musical comedy. Completed just before his sudden death, Louis Quilico’s performance as the titular lead is warm and big-hearted, full of personality. The cast features Emily Loesser and Jo Sullivan Loesser, Nancy Shade, Don Stephenson, Karen Ziemba and the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by John Owen Edwards.
