After two years of workshopping abroad, Santino is very proud to bring his new musical back to his hometown for an exclusive sneak-peak as it continues it’s journey towards the great white way. After much acclaim, this staged-reading / workshop is your backstage pass to the artistic process—a chance to see what goes into making a broadway musical come to life!
Set upon an Elizabethan stage, ANOTHER HAPPY ENDING tells the story of Clown, a raucously funny fool, and Student, an apprentice fool with idealistic and didactic aspirations. The musical takes place upon the night of Student’s graduation, a time honored ritual where these two fools must please their audience under penalty of death. They begin to tell a whimsical mashup of all fourteen Shakespearean comedies but the artistic divide is not an easy bridge to gap and, as tensions mount between teacher and pupil, Shakespeare’s iconic characters (and the audience) get caught in the crossfire of high and low comedy—each comedian attempting to redefine what it means to find, have, and ultimately make their own happy ending.
Directed by Cara Reichel (Death for Five Voices, Evergreen, Goldenboy of the Blue Ridge) & musically directed by Peter Mills (The Flood, Marco Polo, The Honeymooners), ANOTHER HAPPY ENDING is just another way Goodwill Theater continues to bring professional theater to the Greater Binghamton area.
