Ambitious, Entertaining, Funny, Quirky, Great singing

See it if You are a baby boomer or advancing in age. Enjoy references to childhood in the 60's. Like small intimate theaters. Like 2 man shows

Don't see it if You dislike tiny theaters and audience participation. Corny jokes. The exuberance of the actors make the show

Fluffy, Funny, Raunchy, Edgy, Great singing

See it if You're able to laugh at the fact that the older you get, the more you may need things like Viagra, have gray pubic hairs, and memory loss.

Don't see it if You don't think it's funny to make fun of AARP recipients, or you're interested in full musical productions, and not 2-man just-okay shows.

"'Happy 50ish' is a consistently entertaining and occasionally hilarious distraction from the summer doldrums...The jokes may be hoary, but if they make us laugh at our universal condition, more power to them..Some of this is overly familiar, of course, but that doesn’t prevent your funny bone from being tickled by several seriously funny riffs."

"The complaints about hitting that big five-O are not exactly new...But, there are moments in 'Happy 50ish' that really do work...If this show does not call for deep thought, it does ask some difficult questions: Is it better to fight aging or age gracefully and graciously? The answer seems to be just suck it up and smile."

"If you are 50ish or older, or know someone who is, you are going to appreciate this upbeat, hilarious, audience participation musical that will make you laugh and cry at the tragic reality of getting old. Happy 50ish features a remarkably attractive and well-lit set. The sound system is top notch. Mark Vogel as Mike and Lynn Shore as Bob are wonderful actors and singers with great synergy. All the musical numbers are very enjoyable. I guarantee you will leave the show in a good mood."

"Throughout this musical, I laughed and cried at the same time...'Happy 50ish' is a musical joyride full of the cavalcade of life's mostly good fortunes. It was a privilege to catch this well-acted, two-man play, which I believe has the potential to become a big hit that will run for years!"
