Happy Hunting

Happy Hunting
Mama Rose meets "The Hostess with the Mostess' on the Ball" in this light-hearted romp.


A strong-willed matriarch meets high society in Happy Hunting, a star vehicle originally written for the incomparable Ethel Merman. The book was written by the die-hard Lindsay and Crouse (Anything Goes) and the original production was directed by the legendary Abe Burrows.

When Liz Livingstone--rich, widowed Philadelphia hostess at odds with the Main Line crowd - perceives a snub at the Grace Kelly-Prince Rainier "Wedding of the Year" in Monaco, she single-mindedly sets out to snare an even more impressively titled husband for her daughter. Things get predictably complicated when she succeeds and then promptly falls for her intended son-in-law herself! Meanwhile, the bride-to-be only has eyes for a society lawyer. Things really get interesting when Liz's dashing Duke turns out to be penniless. 

Happy Hunting features a gag-filled book and a delectable score, including the Merman classic, "Mutual Admiration Society." In addition to the star role, this large cast gives opportunities to many female performers, including teenagers. Happy Hunting is a flamboyant, bubbly, light-hearted romp!
