The Alliance Theatre has been selected to not only host the American premiere of production but also play host to a performance that was written in two languages: Korean and English. The musical, “Maybe Happy Ending,” will debut in English on the Alliance’s Coca-Cola Stage in Midtown from February 5th to 16th.
Maybe Happy Ending—with book and music by Will Aronson and book and lyrics by Hue Park— is set in the not-too-distant future in Seoul, Korea, where two obsolete helper-bots are living an isolated existence in a robots-only housing complex on the edge of the city. When the two discover each other in the hall, they have a surprising connection that challenges what they believe is possible for themselves, relationships, and love.
Directed by Tony nominee Michael Arden (Once On This Island, Spring Awakening), the Atlanta cast will feature Kenny Tran as Oliver, Cathy Ang as Claire, Dez Duron as Gil Brentley, and John D. Haggerty as Man. The production will also have scenic design by Dane Laffrey, costume design by Clint Ramos, lighting design by Travis Hagenbuch, projections design by Sven Ortel, sound design by Peter Hylenski, and music direction by Deborah K. Abramson.
“I am so thrilled to be working with these incredible artists to bring the work of Park and Aronson to audiences,” said Director Arden. “It’s a beautiful and human story that reflects how when you sign up to love someone, you, in turn, must sign up to lose them. I can’t wait for audiences to experience this incredible piece, led by this sensational company of actors.”
Don’t miss Maybe Happy Ending tomorrow night at the Alliance Theatre! Tickets start at $10.00 and are available online at www.alliancetheatre.org.
