The first English language recording of the landmark Brecht/Weill collaboration features such classic tunes as “Surabaya Johnny”, “The Bilbao Song” and “The Sailors’ Tango” among others. 

“Brecht and Weill fans who have clamored for an English language recording of this incredible show need wait no longer,” said A.C.T. Artistic Director Carey Perloff. “We are indebted to all the great people at Skywalker Sound and Ghostlight Records for helping make this wonderful piece of musical theater history available to the world. We believe this recording is a great addition to the musical-theater canon and we hope it inspires fond memories and perhaps even future productions of this thrilling work.”

A.C.T.’s recording of Happy End was made possible in part by a consortium of close friends and supporters of A.C.T.

"A madcap musical romp...magnificently performed. It's a knockout with great singing!" -- KGO radio

"Complicated, wistful, poison-tipped ditties (beautifully conducted by music director Constantine Kitsopoulos), using Weill's eccentric designated combination of instruments." -- Variety

"Happy End Lives up to it's name! Musically enticing and entertaining!" -- SF Chronicle
