"...you have to remember that this is music that people listened to, danced to and sang when they just wanted to have a good time." William Angulo
The opening night of the Indiana University Opera Theater’s production of Frank Loesser’s “The Most Happy Fella” was a celebratory evening. It began with a welcome and the announcement of next year’s season from Dean Gwen Richards, proceeded to a surprise sing along with the orchestra for the Dean’s birthday and ended with a standing ovation for IU faculty member Timothy Noble who appeared as Tony in his final stage role.
IU Faculty member Timothy Noble says, “there were two shows that I wanted to do, but never had the opportunity. They were “The Most Happy Fella” and “Carousel.” Actually, Tony from Frank Loesser’s musical is closer to the kind of guy that I am, so I’m glad to have the chance to play him.”
