MOXIE: A Happenstance Vaudeville

Winner of two Helen Hayes Awards! Outstanding Costume Design and Musical Direction

A theatrical collage inspired by the Great Age of Vaudeville, infused with the joys and struggles of its performers' lives. In homage to the style and spirit of this immensely popular theatre from the late 19th Century, Happenstance Theater brings old Vaudeville back. 



"With its stream of motley diversions, Moxie has the piquant flavor and pacing that surely contributed to vaudeville's appeal. At the same time, this show maintains a sly modern perspective, drawing attention to the old-fashioned nature of many of its acts."                                                                                    -  The Washington Post                                                      FULL REVIEW HERE

                             BROADWAY WORLD:

"Moxie: A Happenstance Vaudeville gives your rambunctious youngster a few moments of gleeful anarchy, your friends a little of the old soft shoe, while mom & dad can "ooh" and "aah" over Sabrina Mandell's stunning period costumes and some truly beautiful tableaux."   - Broadway World
