“An ebullient musical comedy […] It rejoices in good taste as well as high spirits.” – New York Daily News. Old Hobson is an exasperated, penny-pinching bootmaker
with three eligible daughters, but the eldest, Maggie, is his most valuable business asset. Just when it seems life and love have passed her by, the wise and
winning Maggie rebels and sets up her own shop, taking her father’s best bootmaker, Will Mossop, along with her. The transformation of this humble chap,
as well as Maggie’s blossoming, is a touching, comic delight. Walking Happy is based on the play Hobson’s Choice by Harold Brighouse. The music
is by James Van Heusen and the lyrics by Sammy Cahn.
