I loved this show. Full of life-affirming dance by a true master. A must see.

O Happy Day!, by Graham Chapman & Barry Cryer
Two Thumbs Up!
Sunday, November 12, 2000
5.0
During my years studying in London at LADA I discovered that you can always tell how good a play is by how easy the actors make it look; if the dialog appears to be coming straight from their brains and though their mouths, then it's a good sign it's based on truth.

Oh Happy Day (by the late Graham Chapman of Monty Python and Barry Cryer) has all of that - plus it's funny, frequently hilarious, and often leaves you paralytic with laughter. The cast deserves high praise. There's not a bad egg in the carton. The director should be awarded honory British citizenship for his ability to take something so British as a drawing room farce, have it come from the minds and mouths of a group of American (and SOUTHERN!) actors and have it be believable.

Unlike some others on this board, I had no problem with the play's themes, or whether they were dated. That's mainly because I don't think they are dated. I think there are still a lot of people out there who feel it's wrong for bride's to be pregnant, and for groom's to be gay. In short, two thumbs up for Oh Happy Day! It's funny and smart and sweet. A great evening out.
