Happy End

Happy End

November  1–4, 2018


Set in the gritty streets of Chicago, Happy End tells the tale of an unlikely love affair between a virtuous Salvation Army worker and a hard-boiled gangster. This steamy musical pairs Bertolt Brecht’s biting and witty social satire with a thrilling score from Kurt Weill.
