The Jersey Mecca Cocktail Lounge in Newark, NJ really starts jumping one rainy evening when Addie Bemis, a soft- spoken librarian, decides it’s time to live it up. Originally produced by Rodgers & Hammerstein at the Broadhurst Theatre in 1946.
“TACT/The Actors Company Theatre, which mounted flawless Off-Broadway revivals of Brian Friel’s “Lovers” and Neil Simon’s “Lost in Yonkers” last year, has done it again with “Happy Birthday,” a smart little comedy by Anita Loos….” –WSJ
“One of the season’s finest performances by an actress can be found in the spirited revival of Anita Loos’s 1946 hit play “Happy Birthday,” being incisively presented by TACT (The Actors Company Theatre), celebrating its 20th anniversary, and superbly directed by Scott Alan Evans.” —New York Calling
