Happy Days

Winnie’s buoyant optimism shields her from the harsh glare of the inevitable in Beckett’s unforgettable masterpiece of modern theater. Often referred to as “the Hamlet for actresses,” Winnie is a mountain of a role, physically and emotionally. A summit part for Milwaukee’s veteran actor, Laura Gordon. “HAPPY DAYS remains an absurdly funny and boundlessly compassionate portrait of the human spirit.” - New York Times
