From June 26 - August 16, 2020, the 17th annual Bard SummerScape festival features seven weeksof world-class opera, theater, dance, cabaret, film, and music, including the 31st annual Bard Music Festival,Boulangerand Her World.
In this year's theaterprogram(July 9-August 2),Frank Loessers musical theater masterpiece,The Most Happy Fella, is a celebration of love, a meditation on longing, and above all: an examination of the lengths well go to satisfy our desires. InMost Happy, director Daniel Fish sets Loessers lyrical score for eight performers who gather on a stage design inspired by Florent, the iconic restaurant thatfor more than 20 yearswas a hub for entertainment, activism, and community in the heart of Manhattans Meatpacking District. Plot fades away, leaving behind music, voice,and raw emotion. It is anentirely new way to experience the songs of an American musical treasure.
