Get "Happy" at Authors' Playhouse in Bay Shore
Combining situation comedy and live theater, "Happy Saturdays" tells the story of a group of friends who help each other get through it all while enjoying life. Johnny, Rusty, Kay, Gabrielle, Billy and Mr. Jonez all work at a neighborhood theme restaurant on Long Island called Happy Saturdays. The play takes us through one insanely busy Saturday night and shows how lives can change when friendship is put to the test.
This production has performed several runs, including a successful performance at Carolines on Broadway. This time around, Susan Tromans, Authors' artistic director, is calling the shots.
"I'm extremely happy with this new cast and crew. Everyone is very talented and we all get along (which is what I always look for in a production). The Authors' Playhouse is an amazing place to produce new work and I'm looking forward to many more productions with them," Strangio said.
Strangio, a graduate of Hofstra University, writes for the nationally syndicated comedy publication Cracked Magazine, and was the on-air host for the television program "Your Internet Show" on WLNY TV55. Three of his short films (with two more in pre-production), and five of his plays were produced on Long Island.
