Happy Endings reunion

At long last, a Happy Endings reunion is finally going to happen – and we only have to wait a few days to see it.

But the good news with setting the bar low at the start is that it should be easy for things to improve from here.

Listen to the musical’s soundtrack and get the plot details below. Read More »
