What a whirlwind of a week! On Wednesday, September 19, we were awarded a THIRD show as part of the NYNW Theatre Festival! Then on Friday the 21st, Kyra and Kimerer attended the Planet Connections Theatre Festivity Awards Ceremony. Kyra was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Musical, and Kimerer was nominated for Outstanding Music/Lyrics in a Musical. While neither of us won, we appeared as the final performance of the evening, singing a rousing rendition of “Richer Am I”!
Stay tuned for more news about the future of Happy If Happy When!

HAPPY IF — HAPPY WHEN
July 21, 22, 23, at the Fort Salem Theater
A fictional family of seven — played by our real family of seven — sets out to follow a dream of moving to the country. Tensions erupt as kids and parents push and pull one another along their way to a small farm, which has its own ideas of what it wants this family to be.
I wrote the book, the lyrics, and the melodies. Geoffrey wrote the orchestrations. Jordan, Jessica, Kyra, Kai, and Leif starred as young people not unlike themselves. We had a fabulous band in a charming theater!
Thanks so much to everyone who helped it happen!
